Here's the story, of a name named Vaughn, who decided to reboot a classic TV show!

The Watch and Wedding Crashers star Vince Vaughn is developing a new version of the classic sitcom The Brady Bunch for CBS, a source confirms to E! News.

Vaughn developed the multi-camera project centering on one of America's most famous TV families with Raising Hope's Mike Mariano, who wrote the pilot script.

While it remains to be seen if any of the stars of the original series, like Florence Henderson and Maureen McCormick, will come onto the project, Lloyd Schwartz, the son of Sherwood Schwartz, the creator of the original sitcom, will serve as an executive producer.

Like the original series, the new Brady Bunch will center on Bobby Brady, a man with children of his own, remarrying a woman who also has children from a previous marriage. However, viewers will see some changes: the couple will share a child of their own and their ex-spouses will still be in their lives.

This wouldn't be CBS' first reboot of a classic TV show: the network revitalized the Hawaii Five-0 franchise with Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan and CBS TV Studios produces the CW's 90210, a reboot of Beverly Hills 90210.

CBS would not comment on the development of The Brady Bunch.
