Who’s in it: Matthew Broderick, Alan Ruck, Jeffery Jones, Jennifer Grey, Charlie Sheen, Ben Stein, Mia Sara
Who’s not in it: So far, it looks like that everyone from the first movie might be showing up in some fashion… maybe. Everything’s still in pre-pre-pre-production
What’s it about: Fast forward Ferris’ life 20 years, where he’s now a successful self-help businessman / guru with Cameron as his faithful assistant. All this hard work has taken a toll on him and he decides to of course, take a day off and this throws everyone in to some sort of frenzy and hilarity ensues. Ed Rooney, though no longer a school principal, still wants to make Ferris’ life hell for some reason, Ferris’ sister is married to the guy she meets in the police station (Charlie Sheen), Ben Stein is working at an airport and Ferris’ ex girlfriend (Mia Sara) is a Hollywood starlet in the middle of a rough divorce. Those who have read Rapier’s script call it exceptional and remarkably faithful to the original.
Rumors / fun facts: The script for Ferris Bueller 2 is still being shopped around Hollywood and screenwriter Rick Rapier is hoping to get John Hughes to direct, though at this point, he can say he wants the Pope to star in it and it’s just as likely. Nothing is even remotely final about getting this project off the ground, so if it happens, it would be years and years away.Reality or not? If you read it on the internet - must be true!
