The concept of the horror movie's "final girl" has undergone something of a renaissance in recent years with the aid of movies like 'You're Next' turning the idea on its head, but ABC Family may have the last word in coming to define the term.

Whether you've got that special someone or see nothing wrong with the single life, one fact remains certain: someone has tried to get you to cry with them at a Nicholas Sparks movie. Whether 'The Notebook,' 'The Lucky One,' 'Dear John' or 'The Last Song,' you've inevitably seen that same poster of a couple holding one another with a sunlit backdrop. Now you needn't leave your home! Nicholas Sparks, author and architect behind every tear has made a deal to bring not one, but three new dramas to TV, but based on which of his books?
Oh come on, we had to. With her status on 'American Idol' seemingly always in jeopardy, diva mogul sensation Jennifer Lopez might be moving into a new area of TV, this time ditching reality for family with a new ABC series that goes where no drama has gone before.

Not too many people realize this, but there's more than just two films to the 'Home Alone' series. There's actually four movies already made and now a fifth one is on the way from ABC Family, titled 'Home Alone 5: Alone in the Dark'. The fairly popular television network is planning to release the latest movie during December of this year.
