Johnny Knoxville Takes A “Sick Day”

Johnny Knoxville is attached to star in Jeremy Garelick’s comedy “Sick Day” for Universal Pictures.

Described as a modern-day “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” Knoxville will play one of three friends who have an annual tradition of calling in sick one day per year, where they fulfill their wildest fantasies without getting caught.

Jordan Cahan (“My Best Friend’s Girl”) is rewriting the original script by Garelick. Brian Grazer, Edward Bates and Kim Roth will produce.
