It’s already tough to know how John Francis Daley manages to find the time to play Dr. Sweets on Bones and be part of an in demand writing team, along with Jonathan M. Goldstein, but now he’s going to direct a film as well. THR reports Daley and Goldstein have signed on to direct New Line Cinema’s reboot of the Vacation franchise.
The original, which starred Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Anthony Michael Hall and Dana Barron, followed the Griswold family’s cross-country drive to the Wally World theme park, which proved to be much more arduous than they’d anticipated. The reboot will centre Rusty Griswold, the son from the original film, who’s now a grown man and decides to take his own wife and kids on a road trip to Wally World before it closes forever. Chevy Chase is expected to be a part of the film, playing his role as Clark Griswold, now a grandfather.
Daley and Goldstein scored a significant hit writing Horrible Bosses, and are also involved with upcoming New Line projects Horrible Bosses 2 and Burt Wonderstone.
