The upcoming A Christmas Story sequel titled A Christmas Story Christmas – no joke – has added a few more familiar faces, as Zack Ward (Scut Farkus), Ian Petrella (Randy), Scott Schwartz (Flick), and R.D. Robb (Schwartz) have now joined the cast of the upcoming Christmas movie. They’ll continue the storyline quite a few years after the original as an adult Ralphie, played by the returning Peter Billingsley, tries to give his kids the same magical Christmas that he had all these years ago.
Nick Schenk wrote the project with Clay Kaytis attached to direct the film for Warner Bros. and Legendary. Vince Vaughn is also on board producing it through the Wild West Picture Productions alongside Billingsley. The returning cast highlight how the project aims to build up him reuniting with some old friends and coming to terms with the death of his father.
It’s noteworthy that this is Petrella‘s first film since he played Randy in the original. So, it’ll be more than just a reunion for the actor. Ward has appeared on the FOX series Titus and in the recent Survive The Game project. R.D. Robb has been focusing primarily on the producing side of the film industry and was involved with Freeform’s Siren. Schwartz went on to appear in The Toy, KIDCO, and in a recurring role on ABC’s The Goldbergs.
