The Wimpy Kid franchise may not have lit up box offices worldwide, seven years on it’s still going strong and this May a new movie is coming. Five years since the last adventure The Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Longhaul has a new caped crusader, a new web-slinger and a new kid who wants to be ‘wimpy’. Like many long-running franchises there comes a time when they must be rebooted and Wimpy Kid movie 4 is that movie. A new generation of wimpy kids, new family and the same old troubles are not far beyond! Watch first UK Trailer…
Zachary Gordon and Robert Capron our wimps from the previous movies are all grown up so it’s time for a new hero to be wimpy! Our new wimpy hero is Greg, he’s no muscle bound spandex hero, just a skinny little kid (Jason Ian Drucker) who just looks like a Zachary Gordon look alike. This maybe a reboot of sorts it still Jeff Kinney book (probably a combo of stories) and what better way to introduce a new family to the chaos in a family road trip. Now, who would picture Alicia Silverstone playing mum?
In DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE LONG HAUL, based on the record-breaking book series, a family road trip to attend Meemaw’s 90th birthday party goes hilariously off course thanks to Greg’s newest scheme to (finally!) become famous.
The Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Longhaul is set for a 20th May UK & Irish cinema release, starring Jason Ian Drucker, Charlie Wright, Owen Asztalos, Tom Everett Scott and Alicia Silverstone.
