Still would have flopped

It's A Wonderful Life NOT getting a sequel

Nov 21 // Liz Rugg
"No project relating to ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ can proceed without a license from Paramount. To date, these individuals have not obtained any of the necessary rights, and we would take all appropriate steps to protect those rights." It's a holiday miracle! Theoretically, if these producers were to make a deal with Paramount and acquire said licenses, the project could move forward -- possibly even with Paramount's backing, but hopefully the major negative backlash about the project will make Paramount hesitant to proceed.
