Johnny Knoxville doing modern-day Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Johnny Knoxville

Johnny Knoxville is set for Jeremy Garelick’s “Sick Day”, a Uni Pictures comedy that’s described as ‘a modern-day “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”‘.

Says Deadline :

Knoxville will play one of three thirtysomething friends who uphold a tradition of calling in sick one day a year to fulfill fantasies while not getting caught.

Jordan Cahan is currently rewriting the script – which Garelick wrote, but is unable to polish because of her commitments to “The Wedding Ringer”, his feature directorial debut.
