My Dad’s Divorce Blog ™, a major motion picture in development. (Today I found a link to the original shooting script from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.)
I kid. But I imagine it would make quite a screenplay.
The pitch: “Ferris Bueller gets a divorce.”
Staring as DAD, Matthew Broderick.
see the Ferris Beuller reprise commercial from Honda.
And his beautiful ex-y, Sarah Jessica Parker (uh, sure, she’s actually married to the guy above – similarities to ex-y acknowledged)
The ice breaker Felicia Day
wait… maybe Suzanne Vega would be better
The love interest Mary Louise Parker (I’ll admit I have a thing for dark hair.)
Young Son is, of course, played by Justin Beiber.
And Young Daughter is played by Zendaya Coleman from Disney’s Shake It Up, cause we’ve gotta have a Disney tie-in.
The Med’s Doc in Suite 404 is played by Lawrence Fishburn.
“We’re going in without pills this time.”
The Talky Doc is played by Johnny Depp.
“And how did that make you feel? Do you know what John Lennon said about his divorce/separation from Yoko? (pause) The separation didn’t work out.”
Liberal, Progressive, Spiritual, mentor, and Methodist Minister is played by Nathan Fillion (the Firefly dude)
“There’s a dark forest, and a lot of sad feelings. Light a fire, or shoot your way out of it.”
And then again, maybe the Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog is the better format.
With this much fun, it’s bound to be a hit. Strippers, Online dating. Random sex. Recovery. Parenting. Ex-wives and ex-husbands. Now we just need someone to option the script. Takers?
