Archie Yates proved a hit with audiences in Taika Waititi's hit film 'Jojo Rabbit' when he portrayed the role of Jojo's lovable best friend.

Now it seems Disney is keen to give Archie another great role - he's set to star in the reboot of the classic 'Home Alone' movie!

The reboot won't follow the same characters as the original, but the premise of the movie is pretty much the same. Archie will be playing the child is left 'home alone'.

His parents are set to be played by Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Ellie Kemper and comedian Rob Delaney.

'Home Alone' isn't the only film series to be getting a new lease on life, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced earlier this year that 'Cheaper by the Dozen,' 'Night at the Museum' and 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' would all be "reimagined for a new generation" on Disney's new streaming service Disney+.

Fingers crossed this new version is just as good as the original.
