Modern-day 'Breakfast Club' gets thumbs-up
A script for a new movie called "Bumped" is being billed as "The Breakfast Club" of today's generation.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the story revolves around five "twenty-somethings" -- from different cliques, of course -- who find themselves thrown together when they're bumped from an airline flight out of Chicago.
(Nice touch keeping the Chi-town angle in there. Somewhere, John Hughes is smiling -- and scratching off Lotto tickets.)
Just like our beloved "Breakfast Club," the strangers eventually find common ground and befriend each other during the long layover. The diverse characters including a musician, a flirt and a corporate go-getter.
No actors have signed onto the project yet, but Bridget Johnson and Anna Mastro are on board to produce and direct, according to the Reporter.
FIVE FORGOTTEN LINES FROM THE BREAKFAST CLUB:
5. "Were you truly disgusted with what I did with my lipstick?"
4. "Screws fall out all the time, the world is an imperfect place."
3. "Do you think I'd speak for you? I don't even know your language."
2. "I don't screw to get respect. That's the difference between you and me."
1. "We're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that's all."
