Chris shared his ideas throughout an interview with Insider and was even quoted telling the publication that “It’s a waste of time as far as I’m concerned.” After all, “What’s the purpose?
Chris defined, “I’m a firm believer that you don’t remake films that have had the longevity of Home Alone. You’re not going to create lightning in a bottle again. It’s just not going to happen. So why do it?”
