Disclosure / MGM

HBO Max will air a sequel to the 1983 children’s classic “A Christmas Story,” starring the same actor. Peter Billingsley was 12 years old when the original film was released and is currently 50.

For those who don’t remember, “A Christmas Story” was set in the 1940s and followed Ralphie, a boy obsessed with convincing everyone that an airgun was the perfect Christmas present. The new film will be set in 1970, with Ralphie taking his family on a tour of his old childhood home.

The production was titled “A Christmas Story Christmas” and will be co-produced by Warner Bros. and Legendary,

The screenplay was written by Nick Schenk (“Gran Torino” and “The Mule”) and the direction is by Clay Kaytis (“Angry Birds: The Movie”).

Filming will begin in February in Hungary (!), but there is no premiere date yet.

Check out the trailer for the original movie below.
