Walt Disney Pictures are about to bring another family comedy film to the big screen. In their effort to make "Hours of Fun", the mouse house and their producing partner, Scott Rudin Prods., have brought in the two "The $40,000 Man" scribblers, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, to develop the project's screenplay.

The two will be working to rewrite the screenplay originally written by Greg Pace to be used by "Bad Santa" helmer Terry Zwigoff. On the script itself, it reportedly tells about two childhood friends who as kids ordered a series of brand-new toys from the back of their 70's comic books. Years later when they have grown up, they are forced to save their town from the chaos caused by the toys which begin to live up to their wild advertising claims.

Relatively new to the movie scribbling industry, Daley and Goldstein have worked together in writing "$40,000 Man" which has been bought by New Line Cinema in 2007. Daley is known for his role on television drama "Freaks and Geeks" and "Bones", whereas Goldstein has been the writer of comedy series "The New Adventures of Old Christine" starred by Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
