According to Deadline, the writing duo of Vacation and Horrible Bosses has been hired by Marvel and Sony to help Jon Watts pen the script for the upcoming Spider-Man REreboot. This is another odd paring, they don’t strike me as the big budget writers, I’m a big fan of Horrible Bosses, which apparently they came in and saved because the original script was just meh, however I didn’t watch the lackluster Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs. Now the pair did write the travesty that was The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, but you know writers involve.
I can’t help but think that the pair were hired because of Francis affiliation with Freaks and Geeks that they hired him (he used to act on that show as Sam), keeping everything in with the theme of making this Spider-Man film a John Hughes film, I’m cautiously optimistic about this writing duo.
Vacation comes out July 29th, 2015.
