A spin-off of classic John Hughes movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is reportedly in the works at Paramount Pictures.
Titled Sam and Victor’s Day Off, the new movie will “follow the same-day adventure of the titular valets who took the Ferrari on a joy ride in the Matthew Broderick-starrer.”
Others included in the new project are Paul Young (producer), Devon Young (executive producer) and Stephen Cedars, Benji Kleiman and Scott Yacyshyn (associate producers).
For the final one in the series, Gad united Matthew Broderick, Alan Ruck, Mia Sara and Jennifer Grey from the John Hughes cult classic.
Also joining in on the reunion were Lyman Ward and Cindy Pickett, who portrayed Bueller’s parents, as well as economics teacher star Ben Stein, as the cast talked about their memories from the film. Fan Jake Gyllenhaal also tuned-in to ask trivia, while director Kenny Ortega, who choreographed the film’s famous parade scene, also appeared.
The episode ended with a tribute to John Hughes, who died in 2009, with a number of other stars from across his films – including Molly Ringwald, Steve Martin, Catherine O’Hara, Michael Keaton, Judd Nelson and Anthony Michael Hall – recreating lines.
The episode raised money for CORE, which “provides financial relief when a food and beverage employee with children faces a health crisis, death or natural disaster”.
