One of the highlights of last night's Oscar ceremony was the moving tribute to legendary writer/director John Hughes, as some of his most famous collaborators gathered together to celebrate a film legacy that included such classics as 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off,' 'The Breakfast Club' and 'Sixteen Candles.' Now comes word that Paramount may soon add another title to that list: 'Grisbys Go Broke.'

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hughes, who passed away last August at the age of 59, left behind a large body of unproduced and unpublished writing, including the screenplay for 'Grisbys Go Broke,' which Paramount is rumored to be taking a close look at. But while the studio denies those rumors, there's no argument that the script, which follows the story of a rich Chicago family forced to move to the middle of nowhere when they lose everything, would be of interest considering both their relationship with Hughes and his track record for penning successful comedies.
