Christmas is almost approaching, so many people will want to see the two Home Alone movies again, as they do yearly. Macaulay Culkin starred in this renowned comedy from the 1990s. Thanks to the efforts of the entire ensemble, especially the thieves—the renowned Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern—the movies became true milestones. Joe Pesci, talking to People, reveals if He’d Do a Third Home Alone Movie.
While you should never say never, it would be challenging to replicate not only the success but also the overall innocence of the originals. It’s a different time now; attitudes and priorities have changed over the past 30 years.
In the same interview, Pesci discussed his friendship with Macaulay Culkin while filming Lost the Plane.
I remember Macaulay being lovely and very professional, even at his age. I intentionally limited my interactions with him to preserve the dynamic between his character Kevin and my character Harry. I didn’t want him to see on the screen that we were somehow on good terms. I tried to maintain the integrity of the adversarial relationship. Pesci further claimed that he sustained a significant injury in a memorable scene where Kevin’s booby traps set Harry’s hat on fire.
In addition to the expected bumps, bruises, and general aches, you’d associate with that kind of physical humor. I suffered severe burns on the top of my head during the scene where Harry’s hat was set on fire. I was lucky enough to have professional stunt performers doing the heavy stunts.
