There's a casting call for a sequel to "A Christmas Story", which has the working title of "A Christmas Story, Too".
This time around, Ralphie is a teenager, and he wants a certain, special convertible for Christmas. Since it's been almost thirty years since the original movie came out, none of the original cast members would be the right age. And, of course, Darren McGavin, who was fantastic as Ralphie's father, passed away a few years ago.
The original movie was based on the writings of Jean Shepherd. Several stories from his collection "In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash" were used, and Jean actually served as the film's narrator, too. Sadly, Jean passed away in 1999.
There's no word on whether this new film will be based on other writings by Jean Shepherd, or if it's a completely new story. It's much too early in the process to really know much of anything,beyond the announced casting call.
I know it's rare that a sequel lives up to expectations, or comes close to equaling the original. But personally, I'd love to check in on Ralphie's family at another Christmastime. For that matter, I think it's time the Griswold's took another Christmas Vacation, too.
You can find out a little more about casting here, where you can also read about the previous sequel "It Runs In The Family", which also had a completely different cast (and had nothing to do with Christmas).
