Eighties Brat Pack star MOLLY RINGWALD is begging filmmaker JOHN HUGHES to make
a sequel of 1984 teen movie SIXTEEN CANDLES.
Ringwald made her name in the adolescent romantic comedy, the first of a
string of collaborations with Hughes.
And 24 years later, the now 40-year-old is campaigning for a follow-up, after
Hughes vetoed original plans for a sequel.
Ringwald tells AOL Television, “It was something that I definitely wanted to
do, but 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
“I think that Sixteen Candles lends itself to (a sequel). It was such a
Cinderella story. And I was interested to see what happened to this girl.”
