Everyone Wants a Piece of the Comeback Spotlight

| Filed under: Film FlickersZ List

This could be good…or really bad!

Molly Ringwald revealed in a recent interview that she would be up for doing a Sixteen Candles sequel.

Ringwald says, "It was something that I definitely wanted to do, but [writer-director] John Hughes wasn't interested, and I didn't feel comfortable doing it without his involvement. If we can get John to agree, I think it would be great. I think there are definitely a lot of people who would love to see it, and I would love to do it."

Perhaps, John Hughes knows what's best. Why mess with a classic?

What are your thoughts?

Do y'all want to see a sequel????

    Re: hater – The most recent thing Hughes has done is Maid In Manhattan, & maybe a couple of other flicks.

    I would only see the remake if it included Ringwald, the guy who played Jake Ryan & Anthony Michael Hall

    Hells yes….I'd watch it. Right about now all the eighties kids are getting nostalgic. IF DONE PROPERLY, it could be fab. Don't just do it for the sake of doing it though, and have it wind up complete shite.

    Re: ae – Who are you and how old are you???? 12????? This was a HUGE hit in the 80s and while I don't think a sequel is a good idea, there are many people in their 30s/40s who are nostalgic for their teen years. Trust me - you will be too. Don't be so naive to think that only teens contribute to the economy (via music, art, clothes, etc.) Adults with jobs and money contribute as well…..

    a sequel, if directed by Hughes, would rock!!!



  9. 209

    One of my favorites… I watched it just a few days ago on cable.. No remake, it was just right the way it was! I have already sent an email to all my girlfriends about her new show that starts tomorrow night. We are watching because of Molly and no other reason. She is who we related to growing up and now we can relate to her as mothers.

    I would say no to sequel. Perhaps John Hughes can come up with an original movie. The only thing I know is he is not going to make movies anymore.

    Re: ae
    Do you live in a box? Many many people know and love 16 Candles, it's a cult classic from John Hughes!! You don't have to be from that era to know about his films. Oh yeah, you're a douche bag!!

    227

    for a squeal would mean that Jake Ryan didn't just fuck Sam the nite of her sisters wedding. Then played her off for the rest of the year went off to college never thought of her again. The geek got Jakes girl pregnant, And the sister got divorced no doubt. who needs a squeal.

  28. Angry says – reply to this


    228

    Do it! If Hughes is involved I'm sure it would be good.

  29. Brad says – reply to this


    229

    Generally, you don't make a sequel to a "classic". To my knowledge, no movie that originally *had* sequel ever became a classic either

  30. MK says – reply to this


    230

    They really should have had an immediate follow-up. It could have dealt with their relationship. As to someone who said they should do it with a new generation, no way. The whole point would be to see the originals back. Oh yeah, would someone PLEASE, PLEASE FIND THE REAL LIFE JAKE! I have always been curious as to what he looks like now. Well, him and Willie Olson from Little House.

    Never got what the huge fuss about her was. She looks like any average Irish girl. She's definitely one of the most overrated looking actresses ever.

    She is pretty and sexy. I think I will love her. LOL. Every time I sign in to the celeb club RICHLOVING.COM, I can see many new topics talking about her. She has created a nice profile for seeking a great man for hook ups.

    sixteen candles is an ah-mazing movie…
    they shouldn't put its classic qualities in question with a sequel.

    I saw her starring in the play "Sweet Liberty" last year and she was wretched. Why ruin with a good thing with a sequel?

    I just read that Ringwald is going to star in the 2010 remake of "Jaws". She is starring as the shark and they are renaming it "Gums".

    253

    Re: ae – I know it might be hard for you to believe but, the world was spinning long before you came onto the scene. As a matter of fact you came into the world when the party started winding down! There are people who were here before you and there's a lot of them! You were probably sitting in your shitty diapers when the movie was out or perhaps just a horny thought in your paternal unit's mind. I do think they SHOULD NOT remake 16 candles. BUT, I do think it would be interesting to see an updated 21st century version of it.

  54. cmr says – reply to this


    254

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! They need to leave it be - let's leave Jake Ryan young and beautiful forever, and in the 80's. Too friggin bad if she's looking for work. Maybe she should take some acting classes instead.

    Maybe, Jake is paunchy this time around and they have 5 kids and live in a mobile home but on her 40th b-day, he brings her home a sheet cake with 4 0 candles and a late 80's posrche 924 that still runs and they can drive off with the hatch open and the kids hanging out. How romantic!

    I don't live to far from her home town where she grew up and came back to not to long ago. It's great for the people where I live to see someone from here be reconized for a movie that will always be remembered. She is a great person and she is really nice.

    278

    I've been hearing and reading about rumors of a sequel — always called "32 Candles" in the articles — for around 8 years now. So I doubt that it's truly going to happen. However, they did the same with Dirty Dancing, rumoring it for years, saying that Ricky Martin and Natalie Portman were the stars, and then it came out years and years after I read about it… I dunno about this though. If it's a retelling-with-an-awesome-twist type of thing, like Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights was, then I'm all for it. If it's something like the title "32 Candles"suggests, NO! They have to consider their target audiences and what they want… So I doubt that John Hughes would stoop to that.

    Sixteen candles was a Classic,
    You don't mess with Classics.

    Plus if they do plan to do it.

    What are they going to call it,

    30 years candles later lol

    Don't do it

    anywho, i think a sequal would be terrible. no way.

    283

    *If they can get JOHN HUGHES to direct it. Then I would watch it. I'd prefer though a remake of the BREAKFAST CLUB. I saw the original as a teen, and my children obliged me to rediscover the movie early this year. A sequel will be muched anticipated by X, Y and Z generation and to get together the BRAT PACK WOULD AN ADDED BONUS… GO GO JOHN HUGHES - PRETTY PRETTY PINK PLEASE……*

    284

    hell no..
    sixteen candles does not need a sequel
    besides, she already has a "comeback" in that american teenager thing on abcfamily
