According to reports, a new 75-minute, low-budget feature doc, "Don't You Forget About Me", focusing on late writer/director John "Ferris Bueller" Hughes, has been snapped up by distributor Alliance Films of Montreal.

Toronto film-maker Matt Austin-Sadowski says the feature looks at the life and work of Hughes, creator of "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," "The Breakfast Club" and "Sixteen Candles", lensed during a road trip in which Austin-Sadowski and producers Kari Hollend, Mike Facciolo and Lenny Panzer drove to Illinois to track down the reclusive director.

Actors interviewed in the doc include Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson, Mia Sara, Kelly LeBrock and Andrew McCarthy.

Hughes' 'muse', actress Molly Ringwald, who shares a February 18 birthday with the director (as well as yours truly), reportedly refused to participate in the project.
