After 30 years, John Hughes’s teen classic is finally getting a much-deserved musical release later this year.
Three decades later, writer/director John Hughes’s classic teen comedy, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” is finally getting a soundtrack.
Tim Greiving, an arts journalist who specializes in film music, said La-La Land Records, which specializes in movie soundtracks and scores, struck a deal with Paramount Pictures to release an authorized “Ferris Bueller” soundtrack, with songs and score, later this year. The track list is not yet finalized.
Greiving said Hughes’s son James, the film’s music supervisor Tarquin Gotch, composer Ira Newborn, and editor Paul Hirsch were all interviewed for the liner notes, which Greiving has been commissioned to write.
A release date is yet to be determined, but it could happen as early as September.
