March 7th, 2013 by Marc Comments

The writers behind comedy hit Horrible Bosses are working on a new Vacation film, it’s been confirmed.

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein have written the script and will also be directing the film when shooting begins this June.

In an interview with Collider, the pair also confirmed that some of the old cast will also be returning.

Collider: I am very much looking forward to your Vacation movie. Do you know when that will be getting started?

JOHN FRANCIS DALEY: We’re shooting in June in Atlanta and in New Mexico.

JONATHAN GOLDSTEIN: Rusty Griswold is grown-up, and that’s Ed Helms. We’re casting the other parts now and it’s pretty exciting. I mean we’ve been directing shorts together, but this is our first feature. When we wrote the script we didn’t know we’d be directing it and then New Line said, “Do you wanna pitch yourselves to direct it?” And we were like “You bet!”

DALEY: And then we looked at the script and it was like, “who wrote this piece of shit?”

GOLDSTEIN: We immediately turned into directors.

Do you have any plans to bring back any of the other original cast members or anything?

DALEY: We do, we do.

GOLDSTEIN: We’re in the process of having those conversations.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
