It is retro all over again! Many creators are retrospecting and remaking old films. Does that mean they are out of good scripts or is it really a new point of view being implicated in the old movies which were being remade? Perhaps we will never know but here is all you need to know about the new movie which is still in the making. A spinoff of the 1986 John Hughes movie 'Ferris Bueller’s Day Off' is in the works at Paramount Pictures titled 'Sam and Victor’s Day Off' from 'Cobra Kai' creators Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, and Josh Heald. Bill Posley is set to write the movie script. '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.

But before that let's brush up on the origin of the spin off. 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' is a 1986 teen comedy movie written, co-produced, and directed by John Hughes, co-produced by Tom Jacobson, and starring Matthew Broderick, Mia Sara, and Alan Ruck. It tells the story of a high school slacker who skips school, with two of his friends, for a day in Chicago and regularly breaks the fourth wall to explain his techniques and inner thoughts. Hughes wrote the screenplay in less than a week. Filming began in September 1985 and finished in November. The movie received acclaim from critics and audiences who praised Broderick's performance, humor, and tone. In 2014, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, being deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

Hurwitz opened up about the remake and said, "We’re ’80s kids. When we talk about the seminal film experiences of our lives, there is a five-year period from ’83 to ’88 where a lot of those movies fall for us. 'Ferris Bueller' was such a moment in our lives. We love side trips. In 'Ferris Bueller', this great wish is being fulfilled with these two vets who take this amazing Ferrari to the ultimate pleasure. We only get a glimpse or two of them leaving, climbing a huge hill, taking the car in the air and then returning it. What is going on in their life? They seem to be living a very different experience than Ferris, who lives in the last suburb. What could be the reason that they needed that car, wanted that car and were taking it? When you start unraveling all the threads, it gave rise to a lot of ideas. We’re excited to tell a very different story that happened in Chicago that day trying not to re-read 'Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.' It’s only trying to add this; We are not trying to strangle anyone. We love and respect the movies that everyone talks about as being untouchable, and it doesn’t want to touch or mess with 'Ferris Bueller' in any way," according to Trending News.
