One of John Hughes lost movies is reportedly set for a posthumous release.

Bosses at Paramount Pictures have purchased the rights to Hughes' unfilmed script Grisby's Go Broke, about a dysfunctional Chicago, Illinois family who lose all their money when the economy slumps.

Hughes quit Hollywood in 1994, but is said to have left behind boxes of notebooks and computer files containing film ideas and screenplays after his death last year.

Now The Breakfast Club director's lost script is set to go into production posthumously, with movie chiefs looking for a writer/director to update the screenplay and begin filming, according to Slashfilm.com.
