Ferris Bueller's day without work shares the concept for persevering with the nursing house

Ferris turns blue There was no sequel in the '80s, though it was turned into a TV show that followed the adventures of Ferris and his best friend Cameron in high school. Many people associated with the original film have always hesitated to even speak of a follow-up without director and creator John Hughes. Well, Matthew Broderick's co-star in the film, Alan Ruck, who played Cameron, believes he knows how a sequel could and should work. And it all starts in the nursing home.

Did Cameron trade his Ferrari for a Rascal scooter? That is the imagination behind the pitch that Alan Ruck suggests. The actor has enjoyed great success in Hollywood since the days of starring in a John Hughes classic when Ferris Bueller's Day Off hit theaters in 1986. But nothing has ever been compared to this legendary comedy. Today, Ruck stars in Succession and plays a fun role in the body-switch horror comedy Freaky, which hits theaters this month. Promoting his newer projects gave the actor an opportunity to think back to one of his favorite roles.

Alan jerk long left high school and is currently 64 years old. As he aged gracefully and entered his later years, he pondered where Cameron and Ferris would be in this phase of life. And it makes him conjure up a sequel that actually sounds pretty funny. Alan Ruck had this to say about Ferris Bueller's Day Off 2: The Golden Years, while also revealing that a Hollywood sequel was on the lips of many creative minds well into the 1980s.

“There are always little rumors and different writers will come up to [me] at parties or awards shows and say, 'I have a great idea' and then you never hear about it. Before, John Hughes spoke with Matthew about whether Ferris should go to college. I always thought they should wait until Matthew and I are in our 70s. Cameron is in a nursing home and Ferris comes and breaks him out! "

John Hughes died over a decade ago, and died on August 6, 2009. At that time, all ideas for the sequel to one of his classic films disappeared except for the Vacation franchise, which had continued without John Hughes before his death. Aside from Vacation, no other John Hughes film has received the sequel, although its teen comedy Weird Science has also been turned into a TV show like Ferris Bueller.

At some point there was talk of a Ferris Bueller & # 39; s Day Off 2, in which Ferris finds himself in a dead end and takes a sick day to relive his youth. This idea was never realized. As far as Alan Backpack's idea of ​​a nursing home ever became a reality, Paramount Pictures and the John Hughes estate would have to decide. Though it sounds like a perfect ending to the legacy.

The entire cast of Ferris Bueller was reunited during the quarantine. Alan Ruck says he'll be back on the follow-up set very soon. Freaky is in theaters on November 13th to celebrate Friday November 13th. This news is from Entertainment Weekly.
