If they do indeed set it 20yrs or so from the original they probably won't be able to cast Matthew Broderick because he still looks exactly the same.HUH? Isn't this reality? Let's see, Matthew still looks like a teenager. Let's cast Harrison Ford as Ferris. DUDE!
Unfortunately, for him, he never had too many people in his line.What's up with that? Alan Ruck shows up at some comic convention and hardly anyone gets in his line? He deserves much better. I'd be there trying to get him to tell some stories about his work over the years in the down time between autographs, probably frightening him by remembering he was on the skit comedy show "The Edge."
Reminds me of the Megacon convention in Orlando, FL where hardly anyone got in line for Jenette Goldstein (best known as Vasquez in Aliens and for minor roles in a couple of little films called Terminator 2 and Titanic).
