‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ Spinoff in Development at Paramount

A spinoff to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is in the works. Sam and Victor’s Day Off will be the title of the film, which will tell the story of the unnamed valets who took Ferris’ dad’s Ferrari on a joy-ride, taking place on the same day as the original 1986 film, which was directed by John Hughes.

Cobra Kai creators Jon Hurwtiz, Hayden Schlossberg and Josh Heald will serve as producers for the project. While no director has been attached to the spinoff yet, Cobra Kai screenwriter Bill Posley will pen the script, which will mark the first spinoff to come from one of Hughes’ productions.

In the original movie, Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) fakes an illness so he can stay home for the day and miss his classes. With the help of his friend Cameron (Alan Ruck), he lies to the school’s principal so his girlfriend Sloane (Mia Sara) can join them on their day of fun. The film was highly successful, becoming the tenth highest-grossing release of 1986.

No actors have been announced for the roles of Sam and Victor on the new spinoff, who were portrayed by Richard Edson and the late Larry “Flash” Jenkins in the original movie. Paul Young will serve as a producer, while Dina Hillier will serve as an executive producer for the project.
