    A spinoff of the 1986 John Hughes film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is in the works at Paramount Pictures titled Sam and Victor’s Day Off from Cobra Kai creators Jon HurwitzHayden Schlossberg, and Josh HealdBill Posley (Bitch Ass) is set to write the film.

    Sam and Victor’s Day Off will follow the same-day adventure of the titular valets who took the Ferrari on a joy ride in the Matthew Broderick-starrer.

    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.

    Paul Young (Key & Peele) is producing through his company, Make Good Content; the company’s executive Devon Young will oversee the project. Stephen Cedars, Benji Kleiman, and Scott Yacyshyn will be associate producers.

    That’s some Star Wars level ancillary character backstory bs. Naturally they should have gone with Charlie Sheen’s character. Played again by a horrifically de-aged Sheen.

    Charlie & Jennifer’s characters meet again in a police station and end up going on a crazy day after Ferris bails them out.

    This also got me wondering what Mia Sara is up to these days she hasn’t acted in anything since 2011.

    She was I think the first actress to play Harley Quinn a life action form in the tv series Birds of Prey.

    And I just see now Jennifer Grey and Clark Gregg are now divorced. Sorry, Coulson.

    Funnily enough, I always got Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Grey mixed up when trying to think of who starred in what back then, when in smaller roles. Like SJP was in Flight of the Navigator but only know that for sure in the past couple years after a rewatch. Guess it's similar to Bryce Dallas Howard/Jessica Chastain. But just funny that Matthew Broderick married SJP while his sister in this was Jennifer.

    As for the movie itself, when i saw the Cobra Kai team were involved, I expected something similar but seeing one of the actors is dead and it's actually going to be set back then is very "When Harry Met Lloyd" and all those direct to DVD sequels/prequels.

    You just know there’s a scene in the script where they can’t drive onto a street because Ferris is dancing in the background on the parade float.

    Assume if this does well we can expect The Lunch Club focusing on what the janitor got up to after Judd Nelson and co submitted their detention essay.

    I cant see people going to the cinema to see this in any numbers, what will they follow it up with, the back story to the snooty waiter?

    A belief in gender identity involves a level of faith as there is nothing tangible to prove its existence which, as something divorced from the physical body, is similar to the idea of a soul. - Colette Colfer
