Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is one of John Hughes’s most recognisable, and most loved films. The 1986 hit was an instant success, achieving an incredible $70 million at the box office on just a $5 million budget. This achievement placed Ferris Bueller’s Day Off as one of the top-grossing films of the year, and was critically acclaimed.

Joining Hughes’ list of teenage comedies, such as The Breakfast Club, and Sixteen Candles, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off went down in cinematic history, and has been referenced countless times throughout cinema ever since.

Most recently, the running through gardens scene was paid homage in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.

While the film is well-loved by many, it never received a sequel – despite some demand from fans and studios.

Cameron Frye star Alan Ruck recently alluded to talks of a sequel, and even joked about how he would like to see his and Matthew Broderick’s characters return.

In a recent video interview Ruck explained that there have been “rumours” of a follow-up for years.

He said: “There are always little rumours, and different writers will come up to [me] at parties or awards shows and say, ‘I’ve got a great idea.’

“Then you never hear anything more about it. Back in the day, John Hughes talked to Matthew briefly about maybe having Ferris go to college.”

Although it would have been great to see the characters getting up to no good in college, Ruck explained his own take on a sequel.

Ruck said: “I always thought they should wait until Matthew and I are in our 70s. Cameron’s in a nursing home, and Ferris comes and breaks him out!”

Ruck is currently 64-years-old, and Broderick is 58, so the possibility of them returning to the franchise in their 70s may not be too far away from a reality.

Unfortunately, as Hughes died in 2009 of a heart attack, his input won’t be included.

Broderick recently spoke out on how he nearly turned down the role of Ferris Bueller back in 1985.

Speaking on Sirius XM, Broderick said: “I thought [the script] was great, and I had a teeny hesitation because having just done [plays] Brighton Beach [Memoirs] and Biloxi [Blues], I was like, ‘Wow, I’m talking to the audience, just like in these plays… and even in Ladyhawke he talks to the camera a bit.’

“You know, when you’re young or starting out you think, ‘I have to do something different.'”

Despite his reservations, Broderick did go on to take the role after some reassurance from people he was close with.

He continued: “My memory is, before I had hung up the phone, [my agent] was like behind me in the room, saying, ‘Yes, you should do it’.”

Broderick said: “He flew to New York. ‘I’ll see you tomorrow. Let’s just not talk about it anymore now, I’ll see you tomorrow,’ and he came and was suddenly in the room with me, saying, ‘Yeah, I do think you should do it.'”

Earlier his year Ferris Bueller’s Day Off actor Larry “Flash” Jenkins died in Los Angeles.

The actor was 63-years-old, and was known for playing a valet in the Hughes flick.
