It's still surprising that Ferris Bueller's Day Off has no sequel in the works. The movie is almost a cult phenomenon with thousands of fans who adore it. It was a massive hit when it was released in the 1980s, but plans for a sequel never materialized in the last 34 years except for a live-action TV show that was canceled after the first season. There's no question that modern Hollywood has become greatly fond of long-delayed sequels like 2018's Halloween, Blade Runner 2049, and Mad Max: Fury Road. So, a sequel may happen sooner than we think and if it does, Alan Ruck has a great idea that the producers can use.
Alan Ruck is currently starring in the HBO series Succession and was a guest on People's Coach Surfing. He talked about his past movies, and the legendary 80s movie came up. According to him, "There are always little rumors, and different writers will come up to [me] at parties or awards shows and say, 'I've got a great idea,' and 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. 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!"
