Well kind of. The teaser bellow has popped up promising a full reveal in May. Rumour has it that Honda has roped Todd Phillips the Director of The Hangover into making a short film for them featuring Matthew Broderick loosely reprising his Ferris Bueller character showcasing their cars.
Not an entirely original idea as HomeAway did a similar thing with 80s National Lampoon Vacation’s favourite family The Griswolds in 2010. Their teaser and short film can be viewed here: http://www.theestablishingshot.com/2010/02/griswolds-are-back.html
This time it looks like John Hughes’s Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) will be switching the Cameron’s dad’s 1961 250 GT Spider California Ferrari for a Honda CR-V as his mode of transport for a day off in Chicago. But we’ll have to wait for Super Bowl Sunday 2 May, 2012 to see the full short and find out for sure. I’m hoping that he brings Cameron and Abe Froman with him.
The Establishing Shot: Ferris Bueller is back Teaser
Cameron: The 1961 Ferrari 250GT California. Less than a hundred were made. My father spent three years restoring this car. It is his love, it is his passion.
Ferris: It is his fault he didn't lock the garage.
