During a Tuesday earnings call, Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that the reboot would be “re-imagined for a new generation” and would include other titles, including Night at the Museum, Cheaper by the Dozen, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Whether these reboots would be movies or TV shows is still unclear.
The original flick starred Macaulay Culkin as an eight-year-old rascal who is left at home alone by mistake while his family leave to Paris on a family vacation. When he realizes two burglars are trying to break into the house, he outwits them with a series of hilarious acts. After a successful opening, the movie got four more sequels.
