Scribes hired for rewrites.

The scriptwriting duo of John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (‘Vacation,’ ‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’ ‘Horrible Bosses’) have been tapped by Sony Pictures to perform rewrites on the studio’s live-action/CG hybrid adaptation of Ari Berk’s book series ‘Secret Histories.’

According to THR, the plot centres on “a geeky Dungeons & Dragons-type fan who discovers he may be a half-faerie when a secret order of mythical beings seeks out his help, thrusting him on an international adventure to save the world.”

Daley and Goldstein will work from a previous draft by Tom Wheeler (‘Puss in Boots,’ ‘The Cape’).
