Cobra Kai Creators are working on Ferris Bueller’s Day Off Spin-off

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

According to Deadline, the upcoming comedy from Paramount Pictures will take place during the original film and will explore the adventures of Sam and Victor, the two parking lot attendants who took the legendary Ferrari for a spin during Ferris Bueller’s day off.

Sam and Victor’s Day Off is being created by Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg and Josh Heald, all of whom were also behind Cobra Kai – the hit spin-off of The Karate Kid.

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) drop out of school for a day off in Chicago — and takes Cameron’s father’s Ferrari on the way.

Arriving in the big city, they leave the Ferrari in a parking garage, where we see it being taken for a spin by two companions.

Although these characters were never named in the original film, it looks like they’re Sam and Victor from the upcoming spin-off – played in the original film by Richard Edson and Larry “Flash” Jenkins.

It’s currently unknown who will play the Tile roles in the upcoming spin-off.

The 10 best action movies of the 80s

Action movies exploded in the 1980s as the genre evolved into a blockbuster artistic movement with crazier stunts and more exciting effects than ever before, and sometimes a hell of a lot of brains and heart.  These are our picks for the best action movies of this decade.

Still, it seems like Ferris Bueller is in good hands. After all, the trio who managed to successfully spin off The Karate Kid’s Cobra Kai and turn it into a smash hit know their way around this ’80s classic. It definitely feels like the right team for the job.

Paul Young is producing the film along with 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.
