Home Alone Part 1: John Hughes, Script, Hiring Chris Columbus, and Casting a Culkin

Peter! We slept in!

John Hughes was in a point in his career where he would exit directing to focus on writing and producing. Though Uncle Buck would provide some help, it was actually a vacation where John got the idea. Learn how he wrote his script…almost as close as the film would come out.

Also learn how Chris Columbus would get the directing job even after a major flop. Oh, and how certain roles almost went to Jon Lovitz, Kelsey Grammar and even Chris Farley. Yep, THAT Chris Farley.
