The blog Stuck in the ’80s says it is. I had to double-check the date on the post just to make sure it wasn’t an old April Fool’s joke just now making the Internet rounds, but no – Steve Spears says Ferris Bueller 2: Another Day Off is the real deal. It seems Ferris has made a mint on motivational speaking, but wealth isn’t making him happy. What he needs is – yep, you guessed it – another day off.
Screenwriter Rick Rapier has been trying to sell his screenplay for the past few years, but says in the past few months “Big name production companies that have first-look production deals with Paramount are reading the script,” meaning Ferris Part Two could feasibly see the light of day. Some blogs seem to think Rapier is, um, exaggerating slightly about the Hollywood insider interest in the movie.
