EXCLUSIVE: Horrible Bosses scribes Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley have gone back to the well at New Line, selling the comic pitch The Bus Driver for 7-figures. The duo will begin writing the screenplay right away. The comedy is about an ex-con who gets a job as a school bus driver and doesn’t prove to be a good influence on the kids.
The scribe team also worked on the New Line comedy Burt Wonderstone, and aside from the Horrible Bosses sequel, they’ve scripted Sony’s sequel to Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs. The duo is planning to debut as feature directors on their comedy Vacation. You might recognize Daley from his early work as an actor in Freaks And Geeks and other series. Goldstein & Daley are represented by UTA. Their attorneys are Adam Kaller and Ken Richman.
