John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are in talks to make their directorial debut on New Line’s reboot of the “Vacation” franchise.
According to Variety, Daley and Goldstein were previously hired by New Line to write the script.
The franchise, which started with 1983’s “National Lampoon’s Vacation” that starred Chevy Chase, produced three sequels (“European Vacation,” “Christmas Vacation,” “Vegas Vacation”) that followed the Griswold family on holiday.
The new film will no longer carry the National Lampoon name and will focus on a grown-up Rusty Griswold who takes his own wife and kids on a road trip to Wally World.
It is unknown whether Chase would reprise his role as Clark Griswold, now a grandfather.
“Wedding Crashers” director David Dobkin is producing.
Daley and Goldstein wrote the script for New Line’s hit “Horrible Bosses” last year.
