If you were not particularly thrilled by the idea of a potential sequel to “It’s a Wonderful Life,” then you should not have to worry much longer.

A spokeswoman from the studio released a statement yesterday, remarking that a sequel to “It’s a Wonderful Life” would not take place without a fight. The possible sequel, entitled “It’s a Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story,” was officially announced earlier this week with Bob Farnsworth, of Hummingbird Productions co-producing alongside Allen J. Schwalb, who was also expected to finance the film. Farnsworth penned the script with Martha Bolton.

It was a disappointment when it was first released and only resuscitated thanks to TV reruns in the '70s and '80s and a brief tenure in the public domain which saw copies of the movie flood the market (read all about that here). Considering that, it's something of a minor miracle that "It's A Wonderful Life" has become a holiday staple. So what better way to honor Frank Capra's timeless classic of suicidal depression turned heartwarming community building than ....a sequel? Oh lord. Yes it's really happening....
