Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is a cult truant comedy from 1986 that still has a sworn fan base today. No wonder, after all, Ferris Bueller, embodied by Matthew Broderick, was a real rascal who didn’t let the authorities spoil his fun and thus created a cinematic monument to youthful carelessness. Whether this carefree 80s can also be translated into the present day ? We’ll find out soon:
The nostalgia experts Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg and Josh Heald, who successfully adapted the cult series “The Karate Kid” for a new millennium with “Cobra Kai”, are now working on a spin-off film for “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”.like the US industry magazine deadline reported.
There is probably already a title for the comedy offshoot: “Sam and Victor’s Day Off”. This already underlines that the spin-off, which is to be created at Paramount, does not focus on truant Ferris and his friends gang.
Instead of this is about the two nameless park rangers from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”, played by Richard Edson and Larry “Flash” Jenkins in the 1986 comedy. Similar to Ferris, these two characters in the film also seize the moment and occasionally borrow Ferris’ legendary Ferrari 250 GT California for a little spin.
Breakfast Club director John Hughes’ cult comedy follows 16-year-old high school student Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) who one morning decides to skip school and have a great day in Chicago. So he gets sick, grabs his friends Cameron (Alan Ruck) and Sloane (Mia Sara) and off they go wild – of course the trio of friends roar through town in Cameron’s father’s 1961 Ferrari.
The day could be so beautiful, but the trio must not be exposed. Neither the parents nor the teaching staff must ever know about it. But school principal Ed Rooney (Jeffrey Jones) has already picked up the trail of Ferris and his friends, because he suspects that the rebellious Ferris is actually not sick in bed…
“Cobra Kai” and “Bitch AssScreenwriter Bill Posley will pen the screenplay. It is not yet known when the film about the parking service employees Sam and Victor will be released, who will direct their adventure and whether there might even be a reunion with Matthew Broderick.
