John Hughes Script Stirs Hollywood Interest

Late writer-director's "Grisbys Go Broke" is making the rounds



    Under the Tucson Sun
    Director John Hughes died of a heart attack at the age of 59 on August 6. Hughes wrote and directed Ferris Bueller's Day Off. He also wrote Pretty in Pink, Home Alone, National Lampoon's Vacation and The Breakfast Club.

    Once more, with moxy.

    A script written by late North Shore writer/director John Hughes -- who received a quote-tastic Oscar tribute Sunday -- is making the rounds in Hollywood, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

    News that Paramount purchased the script is apparently false.

    THW says Paramount is picking up the script, which follows a wealthy Chicago family that loses everything and is forced to move to the sticks...soooo, Schaumburg?

    Paramount wants to turn the script into a family comedy. Soooo...Drillbit Taylor?
