'Horrible Bosses' writers preparing for 'Vacation'

Vacation Chevy Chase

(Everett Collection)

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who penned the summer comedy Horrible Bosses, are in talks to direct their script for a new Vacation film, New Line confirms. Chevy Chase starred in the original franchise, about a well-meaning father and husband whose elaborate plans for quality family-time always fell far short of his own expectations.

Daley, best known from his work on Bones, and Goldstein have never directed a feature before, but their pitch to New Line executives, Variety initially reported, led the studio and producer David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers) to begin talks about putting the duo behind the camera.

It’s unclear whether Chase would have any role in the new film.
