Anthony Michael Hall says the last conversation with the late John Hughes was about the sequel to the Breakfast Club.
The 53-year-old actor played Brain, aka Brian Johnson, in a 1985 comedy comedy about a group of students from different school groups who spend Saturday in prison with their authoritarian Deputy Headmaster Richard Vernon (Paul Gleeson).
And Anthony revealed that the late film director, who died of a heart attack in 2009 at the age of 59, told him that he would like to direct the next film about them in later years before he passed away.
Speaking to The Independent, the Halloween Kills star said, “At the time, he did mention the possibility of creating a sequel to The Breakfast Club. That would be about all of us in middle age.
“His idea was to talk to them between the ages of twenty and thirty. This idea was on his mind, but this was the last conversation I had with him. “
In 2015, actress Molly Ringwald, who played Claire “The Princess” Standish, announced that there was a sequel script.
She said, “Someone told me that there is a script for the continuation of the Breakfast Club. One day it will all come out. “
And Emilio Estevez (Andrew Clarke, Athlete) said he would be ready to reprise his role if the second film comes out.
Speaking before John’s passing, he said, “If this happens, I am there.”
Meanwhile, Judd Nelson recently explained why he believes the secret to the Breakfast Club’s success is that teenage story resonates with people around the world.
The 61-year-old actor played John Bender and suggested that the key to his longevity is that many people can identify with “kids trying to become adults.”
He said last month: “You always hope that the project you are working on will last longer than the minute you worked on. And the Breakfast Club looked like an incredibly fast horse. Just stay where you are. Don’t fall. Do not use a riding whip. Do not use spurs. Just hold on to this horse and you will be fine.
“Getting emails from people who watched the movie … it was just interesting to hear the same from people in, say, Japan.
“I’m like, ‘What? How can your school be the same? “There are many similarities with all children trying to become adults.”
