VACATION

JONATHAN GOLDSTEIN (Writer/Director) is a comedy writer whose credits include the hit ensemble "Horrible Bosses" and "Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2." He makes his feature directorial debut with "Vacation," which he also co-wrote with feature writing and directing partner, John Francis Daley.

After graduating from Harvard law School in 1995 and practicing for two years at a large New York law firm, Goldstein ran screaming from his office, moved to Los Angeles and became a comedy writer. Over the next 12 years, he wrote and produced numerous network television comedies, including "The PJ's," starring Eddie Murphy, "The Geena Davis Show," "Good Morning Miami," "Four Kings," and "The New Adventures of Old Christine." In 2007, in collaboration with Daley, Goldstein sold his first film script, "The $40,000 Man" to New Line Cinema. That script landed on the Hollywood "Black List," and launched the team's screenwriting career.

Goldstein and Daley's 2011 comedy, "Horrible Bosses," which the pair wrote, earned over $200 million at the worldwide box office and quickly became one of the highest grossing R comedies of all time. The pair also wrote "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," and the 2013 hit animated film "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2," which earned over $200 million globally and opened at number one in its first weekend at the box office.

Goldstein and Daley will next make their producing debut on the upcoming action comedy "All Day and a Night" for Relativity studios.

Goldstein lives in Los Angeles with his wife, the novelist, Adena Halpern and their son, Samson.
