Pair Weave New Magician Tale

“Bones” actor John Francis Daley and scribe Jonathan Goldstein are rewriting New Line comedy “Burt Dickenson, Most Powerful Magician on the Planet Earth” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Chad Kultgen’s original screenplay follows a big-time Las Vegas illusionist whose preeminence is threatened by a younger “extreme magician.”

The pair sold comedy spec “The $40,000 Man” to New Line last year, and may also rewrite Disney family comedy “Hours of Fun”.
