A documentary on John Hughes is going to get a worldwide release according to the BBC.
A low-budget documentary about the late director John Hughes is set for international release after its rights were bought, reports say.
Trade magazine Variety said Alliance Films of Montreal agreed the deal shortly after the news broke of the film-maker's death last week.
Directed by actor and film-maker Matt Austin-Sadowski, Don't You Forget About Me takes a look at Hughes' life.
The title comes from the Simple Minds song featured in The Breakfast Club.
Hughes, who died at the age of 59, made hit teen movies such as Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Home Alone and Planes, Trains and Automobiles.
Austin-Sadowski, who starred in the Power Rangers: S.P.D. TV series, said Hughes' films had a huge impact on him when he was in school.
"He inspired me as a person, going through an awkward adolescence, as many people do," he told Variety.
"He took affairs of the heart very seriously, and no other director gave teenagers that sort of treatment at that time."
The film was made before Hughes' death and Austin-Sadowski said he is hoping it will boost people's interests in the director's films.
"That's what's important to us. It's not the deal. It's not more exposure for us," he said.
Actors who participated in the documentary included Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson, Mia Sara, Kelly LeBrock and Andrew McCarthy.
Molly Ringwald, who found fame in Hughes' The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink, refused to take part in the project.
