Marvel's ‘Spider-Man’ Gets ‘Vacation’ Remake Writers

Marvel and Sony's Spider-Man reboot, set for release in 2017, is about to get a little freaky and very geeky as Vacation reboot writers and directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein enter early talks to write the screenplay. The duo were on the shortlist to direct. That job eventually went to Jon Watts, who has Cop Car coming out later this summer. He was announced the same day that Marvel and Sony officially confirmed that Tom Holland had won the role of Peter Parker.

Even though they didn't win the director's job, both Marvel and Sony wanted John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein involved in the process. They are in the midst of launching their first directorial debut, the long awaited Vacation reboot. It hits theaters July 31, and has strong early buzz as one of the best comedies of the summer. That is saying a lot, as it follows the critically acclaimed Spy and this weekend's Trainwreck.

EXCLUSIVE: ‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’ Writers Interview

Writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein take us inside the magical world of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, in theaters March 15

Screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein both took very different paths to where they are today as one of Hollywood's hottest writing teams. John Francis Daley got his start in acting with the cult classic series Freaks and Geeks and films such as Waiting before landing a role as Dr. Lance Sweets on the hit Fox series Bones in 2007. Jonathan M. Goldstein started out writing for TV shows such as Big Wolf on Campus and The Geena Davis Show, which is where he met John Francis Daley for the first time. In 2011, their writing skills were put on the map with the hit summer comedy Horrible Bosses (they're also writing Horrible Bosses 2), and they return to the silver screen this weekend with The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. I recently had the chance to speak with the scribes about how they first started writing together, where the The Incredible Burt Wonderstone idea spawned from, their Vacation reboot/sequel with Ed Helms, and much more. Here's what they had to say.
