Vacation duo in talks to pen Spider-Man reboot

The upcoming Spider-Man reboot may have found its writing team.

John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein, whose directorial debut Vacation hits theaters July 29, are in early talks to pen the script for the forthcoming Marvel-Sony Spider-Man collaboration, EW has confirmed. The duo’s previous credits include the comedies Horrible Bosses, Horrible Bosses 2, and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.

Daley, of course, is also known for his acting, perhaps most notably as Bones’ Dr. Lance Sweets.

The as-yet-untitled Spider-Man movie is slated for a July 2017 release and will see 19-year-old British actor Tom Holland (Wolf HallBilly Elliot: The Musical) don the Spidey suit. Marisa Tomei is in talks to play Peter Parker’s guardian, Aunt May.

The film is helmed by director Jon Watts, whose credits include the Kevin Bacon-starring thriller Cop Car, as well as stints on The Onion News Network.
