Scribes tapped for 'Bosses'

Jonathan Goldstein, John Francis Daley to rework script

New Line better think twice about mistreating frequent hires Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley.

The screenwriting pair has just been brought on to work over the screenplay for New Line's absurdist comedy "Horrible Bosses."

The story line revolves around three friends who decide to whack their abusive "superiors" in a desperate bid for happiness.

New Line picked up the original screenplay from Michael Markowitz (TV's "Becker") in an auction environment in 2005. Brett Ratner's Rat Entertainment, which was housed at New Line at the time, is producing.

Sam Brown and Michael Disco are overseeing for the studio.

Daley and Goldstein do a lot of business with New Line. They sold their original script "The $40,000 Man" to the studio and worked on the in-development magician comedy "Burt Wonderstone" there.

The duo also is writing the comedy "Cal of the Wild" for DreamWorks.
