Krusty the ferret will be playing Ferret Bueller in the film, along with five other back-up ferrets.
“This will be my fourth ferret film,” Parker said. “I’m excited to dive back into the process, yes, but I never really left. I just finished a massive marketing campaign for Santa’s Little Ferrets. January has been all about polishing the script for DWMF. I’ve had this script in the works for almost a year.”
The official synopsis states that the main character, Skeezix, is entering his marijuana plant in a Colorado Cannabis contest that has a prize of $1,000. His girlfriend arrives to drive him to the contest, bringing her pet ferret, Ferret Bueller. She suddenly leaves, which puts Skeezix in the position of trying to get his plant to the contest and take care of the mischievous Ferret Bueller at the same time.
“This is my first comedy. This will be my first time making a movie with no children,” she said. “The only thing that’s old hat to me is the ferret. There’s a lot of hilarious ferret hijinx that all ferret owners will be able to relate to. I am so excited to challenge myself and to take a risk. I want to make a movie that has audiences at film festivals laughing their asses off. I’m very confident that this is that movie.”
Parker plans to begin filming in April. She is still working on getting together the cast and crew. The ferrets have been cast though. She said six ferrets will be used to play Ferret Bueller, the ferret in the film.
For her past three ferret movies, Parker has used crowdfunding through IndieGoGo to finance the projects. Each raised more than $10,000, so odds are that a crowdfunding campaign for Dude, Where’s My Ferret? is coming in the near future. Jake And Jasper and The Magic Ferret went on the film festival circuit and both won multiple awards. Updates about the film are being posted on Dude, Where’s My Ferret? Facebook page.
