John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, writers of Horrible Bosses and New Line’s upcoming film Vacation (where they’ll also serve as the directors), have been tapped to rewrite Sony’s Secret Histories draft, first written by Tom Wheeler (Puss in Boots). The feature is based on a U.K. book series by Ari Berk, and is intended to be a live-action/CG hybrid.
Many fans of Freaks and Geeks (and Bones) may be surprised to see Daley transitioning from actor to writer, but he’s been prolific in his screenwriting so far. After pairing up with Goldstein, a comedy writer, the two have written the Steve Carell-Jim Carrey magician comedy Burt Wonderstone as well as Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers, and are currently working on a Horrible Bosses sequel.
