Sam and Victor are ready for their closeups.
The joyriding valets from John Hughes’ 1986 cult classic “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” are getting their own movie.
“Sam and Victor’s Day Off” is in the works at Paramount Pictures, Deadline confirmed Friday.
The sequel comes more than 35 years after Matthew Broderick’s “Ferris” first handed the iconic Ferrari’s keys to the men billed only as “garage attendant” and “attendant’s co-pilot” in the original film’s credits, NJ.com reported.
The film will be produced by “Cobra Kai” creators Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg and Josh Heald, while Bill Posley is slated to write, Deadline reported.
According to the entertainment news site, the roles of Sam and Victor were originally played by Richard Edson and Larry “Flash” Jenkins, who died in 2019.
In the original film, the characters are seen peeling out of a parking garage with Cameron Frye’s dad’s precious sports car soon after Ferris and Cameron entrust the vehicle to Edson’s character. It isn’t long, however, until the two valets are airborne in the Ferrari on their ecstatic joyride, “set to the triumphant John Williams theme from ‘Star Wars,’” NJ.com reported.
