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?
