Draft ‘Breakfast Club’ script found in Chicago high school filing cabinet

(Universal Pictures)(CNN) — The cast of “The Breakfast Club” escaped from Principal Richard Vernon 30 years ago, but a draft script of the 1985 teen classic has just been found in a filing cabinet in the school district where it was filmed, the Chicago Tribune reported.

“One day a few weeks ago, one of the assistants was going through a filing cabinet and found a file that had a manuscript from ‘The Breakfast Club’ dated Sept. 21, 1983, ” Ken Wallace, superintendent of Maine Township High School District 207 in suburban Chicago, told the newspaper.

“It’s a first draft of the screenplay by John Hughes, ” Wallace said.

The manuscript sports the approval signature of the district’s then-superintendent and reveals that Molly Ringwald’s character, Claire Standish, was originally to be named Cathy Douglas, according to the Tribune.

The movie was filmed at the Maine North High School building, which was auctioned off by the district years ago and is now occupied by the Illinois State Police, according to the Tribune. The file was discovered at Maine South High School as district officials prepared to move to a newly acquired building next door.

Wallace told the Tribune that he would like to find a way to display the script as a piece of film — and district — history.
