Chris Hemsworth and Charlie Day sign on for New Line's 'Vacation'

New Line’s Vacation seems to be making progress in the casting front with a diverse juxtaposition of characters, as Chris Hemsworth and Charlie Day join the reboot of the Chevy Chase classic of the same name. THR first reported the news.

Development for a Vacation reboot was first announced in 2012, but creative differences over the film’s rating delayed filming. The reboot follows up on a grown-up Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms), the young son of Clark Grisworld (Chase) from the original film, as he brings his own family along for a vacation in the same vein of the one he took as a child. According to THR, Hemsworth is set to play the husband of Rusty’s sister Audrey, while Day will make a brief appearance as a river rafting guide. Day’s connection to Vacation is unsurprising—the film will be written and directed by Horrible Bosses scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein.

The boys of Horrible Bosses are back, and they’re not happy.

Nick (Jason Bateman), Dale (Charlie Day), and Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) decide to be their own bosses after the traumatizing events of the first film, but when an investor pulls out of their business venture, the trio resorts to extreme measures once more by kidnapping the investor’s son (Chris Pine) for ransom.

Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, and Kevin Spacey also reprise their roles in the Sean Anders-directed pic.

'Pacific Rim' premiere: Guillermo del Toro and monster-mashing cast pick their favorite feature creatures

Director Guillermo del Toro freely admits he’s a geek for all things sci-fi and supernatural, so he wholeheartedly jumped at the chance to smush two of his favorite Japanese sub-genres — mecha (huge robots, machines or human-piloted suits of armor) and kaiju (giant monsters) — into one super-sized summer blockbuster hopeful: Pacific Rim.

“No one has done it before and that was what first attracted me because I’m a big fan of both these very traditional [Eastern] genres,” Del Toro told EW on the black carpet at the film’s U.S. premiere Tuesday night at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. “This movie represents as much of me as a small adult movie like Pan’s Labyrinth does. They represent two sides of me, but they are both absolutely sincere and full of love. [Robots] and [monsters] are like vanilla and chocolate. You can’t pick which is better. I had a chance to do a giant poem to both of them, so win-win for me.”

The film’s stars also found it impossible to definitively decide whether the menagerie of dino-like aliens or the fleet of epic war machines called Jaegers were cooler. “The movie is way more fun than you can even imagine, because these monsters are formidable and these robots are like a World Cup team,” frequent Del Toro collaborator Ron Perlman explained. “Just when you think you understand [the monsters’] skill set in terms of how dangerous they are, they adapt and reinvent themselves. They are a nightmare of an enemy. But then Guillermo made the team of Jaegers that are kind of like the 1927 Yankees. Each of them has their own personality and swagger and none of them tolerate losing.”

The cast all marveled at the seemingly endless array of badass beasts dreamt up for the Warner Bros. film that now join the annals of movie monster history. It seemed like the perfect time to ask who gets their vote for greatest movie monster of all time.

WonderCon 2013: 2500 tons of awesome from 'Pacific Rim' and 'The Conjuring'

Fans packed the Anaheim Convention Center Arena Saturday afternoon for one of WonderCon’s banner events — a sneak peek of Pacific Rim and The Conjuring, with directors Guillermo del Toro and James Wan.

Del Toro’s highly anticipated sci-fi epic (set for a July 12 release) stars Charlie Hunnman, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day and Ron Perlman. Del Toro has been teasing convention audiences with action-packed footage since Comic-Con 2012 — as if we needed much convincing to check out what happens when human-controlled robots battle monsters.

But WonderCon wanted to get our hearts pounding before treating us to an adrenaline rush, and they did just that with two exclusive — and terrifying — clips from Wan’s The Conjuring, which dares to ask: what happens if those old house creaks aren’t just old house creaks? Jerks.

Casting Net: Rose Byrne in talks to star opposite Jason Bateman and Seth Rogen; Plus: 'Divergent,' 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' more

In Summer 2011, Rose Byrne delivered audiences the one-two punch of Bridesmaids and X-Men: First Class. It looks like she’s aiming to double up on success again. Thursday it was announced that the Australian actress is in talks for not one but two films. She is in talks to join Tina Fey and Jason Bateman in This Is Where I Leave You, based on the Johnathan Tropper book about squabbling siblings following their father’s death. Byrne would play an old crush of Bateman’s character in the film directed by Shawn Levy (Date NightBig Fat Liar). The other project, Townies, is a raunchy Universal comedy whose cast already features Seth Rogen and Zac Efron. Bryne is up for the part of Rogen’s character’s wife. [THR] READ FULL STORY

Casting Net: Sudekis, Bateman, and Day reunite for 'Horrible Bosses 2'; Plus Adam Driver, James Gandolfini, more

• After a reported six months of negotiations, Jason Sudekis, Jason Bateman, and Charlie Day are set to reprise their roles as Kurt, Nick, and Dale for Horrible Bosses 2. The first film grossed over $200 million worldwide on a $35 million budget, so it’s no surprise that New Line was eager to try out a sequel. Business aside, this seems like great news. Not only is the cast remaining intact, we’re getting the same writing (John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein) and directing (Seth Gordon) team, and Jamie Foxx is still in talks to reprise his role as  Motherf—– Jones too. Filming is scheduled to begin this summer. [THR]

• Adam Driver (Girls) is in talks to join the ensemble cast of Shawn Levy’s film adaptation of This Is Where I Leave You, about a group of siblings in the wake of their father’s death. If his Girls schedule allows, Driver would play Bateman’s character’s rebellious brother. Jonathan Tropper wrote the book and the screenplay. [THR]

There's certainly much to enjoy in 
Horrible Bosses, directed by Seth Gordon (read Lisa Schwarzbaum's review here), the funniest workplace revenge comedy to come along since 9 to 5. But perhaps the most unexpected pleasure is seeing Jennifer Aniston play a predatory, filthy-mouthed dentist who delights in sexually harassing her assistant (played by Charlie Day). "I had such a great time doing it. It was ridiculous fun," Aniston tells EW. "I never get that kind of fun stuff. It was great! You do tend to get locked into parts that you play, you know what I mean?  People forget that there are other parts in there. That's what I love about Seth Gordon -- someone with imagination. You just have to have the balls to let people try [other kinds of roles]
