A spinoff of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is in development at Paramount Pictures.
The creators of Cobra Kai – Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg and Josh Heald are producing the spinoff, and Bill Posley will write the screenplay.
The film, titled Sam and Victor’s Day Off, will focus on the two valets, seen in the original John Hughes classic, who took the Ferrari on a joy-ride.
The 1986 American teen comedy film was written, co-produced, and directed by John Hughes, co-produced by Tom Jacobson, and starred Matthew Broderick, Mia Sara, and Alan Ruck. It tells the story of a high school slacker who skips school, with two of his friends, for a day in Chicago and regularly breaks the fourth wall to explain his techniques and inner thoughts.
In the original film, the valet attendants were not given official names. They were played by Richard Edson and Larry “Flash” Jenkins, who died in 2019.
