Ferris Bueller to take another day off?
I love Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and it seems there might be a sequel in the pipeline. A script has been written by Rick Rapier, a relatively unknown scriptwriter, and has been read by a few studio executives. All the characters from the original appear in the script entitled Ferris Bueller 2: Another Day Off.
It catches up with Ferris on his 40th birthday, he is now a famous self help guru thanks to his "Life moves pretty fast" mantra. However he decides to take the day off on his birthday which causes a few problems, especially for Cameron who is now his business manager. Stuck in the 80's has news from the script of where the other characters are as well:
Ferris' sister Jeannie (Jennifer Grey) is married to the boy she met in the police station (Charlie Sheen). No longer a school administrator, Rooney is still stalking Ferris for revenge. The economics teacher played by Ben Stein now is an airline gate representative. Ferris' girlfriend Sloane Peterson (Mia Sara) is a Hollywood star going through a rough marriage.
I think I'd only be interested in a Ferris sequel if the whole gang were back, especially Matthew Broderick and John Hughes. But then maybe part of the Ferris appeal is that skipping school was always a difficult thing to get away with. Skipping work is way easier....Not that I've done it...honest.
