Cobra Kai Creators Working on Ferris Bueller’s Day Off Spin-Off

Ferris Bueller is back, sort of, in Sam and Victor’s Day Off — a spin-off based on the ‘80s classic currently in development from the creators of Cobra Kai.

According to Deadline, the upcoming comedy from Paramount Pictures will take place during the original movie, exploring the adventures of Sam and Victor, the two parking garage attendants who took the iconic Ferrari on a joyride during Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

Sam and Victor’s Day Off will be created by Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, and Josh Heald who were all also responsible for Cobra Kai — the hit Karate Kid spin-off.

During the 1986 classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, the trio of Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick), his girlfriend Sloane Peterson (Mia Sara), and best friend Cameron Frye (Alan Ruck) ditch school for a day off in Chicago — taking Cameron’s father’s Ferrari on the way.

When they get to the big city, they leave the Ferrari at a parking garage where we see it’s taken on a joyride by two attendants.

Although these characters were never named in the original movie, it looks as though that’s Sam and Victor from the upcoming spin-off — played in the original film by Richard Edson and Larry “Flash” Jenkins.

It’s not currently known who will play the tile roles in the upcoming spin-off.

Still, it sounds as though Ferris Bueller is in good hands. After all, the trio who managed to successfully spin-off Cobra Kai from Karate Kid and turn it into a smash hit are bound to know their way around this ‘80s classic. It certainly feels like the right team for the job.

Paul Young is producing the film alongside Hurwitz, Schlossberg, and Heald. Dina Hillier is on board as executive producer with Stephen Cedars, Benji Kleiman, and Scott Yacyshyn as associate producers. Meanwhile, Bill Posley, who wrote Bitch Ass and 10 episodes of Cobra Kai, will write the script.
