Adam Chmielewski is the latest Mid-Western transplant to take up residence in the City Of Angels. Aside from contributing to Nerdbot, he’s writing screenplays for film and television. Just like everyone else in Los Angeles.

It’s not a remake, it’s not a reboot… so what is it?

On July 25th Deadline.com reported a rather interesting development in the world of repeated concepts for movies as Fox is planning to resurrect Home Alone. No, not with an older Macaulay Culkin whose parents forgot to bring him to the family reunion and he’s forced to protect his trendy Chicago apartment from the evil sons of the Sticky Bandits. Though I’d totally pay to see that.

Instead, Fox has hired Ryan Reynolds, the comeback story of the 2000’s to produce what Deadline calls a Home Alone “revision” entitled Stoned Alone. Yes, you’re reading that correctly. And yes, there will be weed. Basically take the premise of a movie, then add that sweet sweet Doja.

Expect a classic stoner story with a Kevin McCallister twist. Somebody is going to forget to do something, because they got high. Then, as a result of their temporary memory loss, they’ll be thrown into a situation which requires defense of their domicile using unorthodox methods.

In the case of Stoned Alone, the lead is supposed to miss a ski trip, because he got high. And of course will find himself threatened by a pair of criminals. And of course he’ll set up all these obstacles as a way of keeping them at bay.

Augustine Frizzell (Never Goin’ Back) is set to direct. While Kevin Burrows and Matt Mider wrote the script based on an idea from a studio executive named Matt Reilly.

I can’t argue with the logic in taking something that was a hit thirty years ago, writing a similar story for today’s audience, and giving it an “R” rating. Sure, it doesn’t do much to address the whole “Hollywood doesn’t have any original ideas” argument but as a business decision, it’s a pretty good one. Plus Ryan Reynolds is so hot right now, again.

Seriously.

Personally you had me at Home Alone, but on weed… man.
