“Ferris Bueller” Remake Gets Matthew Broderick’s Blessing

Matthew Broderick has given Hollywood producers the green light to remake his ’80s teen comedy,Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, but he doesn’t want any involvement in the new feature.

The Gossip Wire has been heating up for months suggesting studio chiefs are nursing plans to bring the cult 1980s comedy back to the big screen in either a sequel or a remake. The Producers star has now commented on the reports, insisting he would be “happy” with any proposed plans to bring the 1986 cult classic back to the big screen — as long as the project features a new cast.

“(A remake) would be fine. I would be perfectly happy for somebody to do that. I probably wouldn’t enjoy (having a role in the film). I would rather leave what we did as our thing,” he tells Cinematical.com.
