John Hughes’s career is in upswing after many quiet years. Sadly he’s pretty dead but, much like Tupac before him, he still has unproduced work floating around out there. And the streets is hot for one of these screenplays. Grisbys Go Broke, a story about a wealthy Chicago family who lose everything and move to the country, is raising a few eyebrows in Hollywood.
Paramount is rumored to be interested in producing though no official offer has been made. It would only make sense for them to acquire the project though. Last night’s Hughes tribute has him fresh in everybody’s minds and besides, they’re making movies about f*cking bubblegum these days. At this rate we’ll be lucky not to see a movie called, Hey, ‘Member That Time I Farted? and its sequel, Hey, ‘Member That Time I Farted Underwater?, within the next decade. (THR)
