If you have a love for John Hughes films and ’80s nostalgia, you’re going to want to listen up folks as the team behind “Cobra Kai” is working on a spinoff to the hit classic “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” Eeeekkkk!!!

As reported by Deadline, Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, and Josh Heald are working on the Paramount Pictures project titled “Sam and Victor’s Day Off,” which will be written by Bill Posley.

The story will follow the titular parking attendants who were left in charge of Cameron Frye’s father’s Ferrari, which starred Matthew Broderick in the eponymous role.

Originally played by Richard Edson of Sonic Youth and the late Larry “Flash” Jenkins, there has been no word yet if Edson or any of the other stars of the original will make stealthy cameos.

“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” soon became a cult classic after its release in 1986 which saw Ferris (Matthew Broderick), Cameron (Alan Ruck) and Sloane (Mia Sara) skipping school in order to make one final duck-out before graduation.

“Sam and Victor’s Day Off,” will be the first spinoff of one of Hughes’ directorial efforts, which were almost always standalone projects. Often referred to as the king of teen comedies, some of Hughes’ other works include “Pretty in Pink,” “The Breakfast Club,” “Weird Science” and “Planes, Trains and Automobiles.”

However, it does look like we are going to have to wait quite some time before we can see the new film in action, as a production timeline for “Sam and Victor’s Day Off” has yet to be announced along with a cast and director.

Either way, this is very exciting news and we cannot wait to see what the new spin-off has in store for us!!
