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.

'Vacation' reboot, starring Ed Helms, delays production

“Are we there yet?” If ‘there’ is the start of production for Ed Helms’ Vacation reboot, the answer for now is no.

The comedy project, a reboot of the 1983 Chevy Chase movie, was scheduled to start shooting in Atlanta this July, but New Line Cinema is slowing things down on the project, EW has confirmed. THR first reported the news.

Vacation‘s production may be delayed for anywhere from a few months until later this year. READ FULL STORY

'Vacation' reunion: Chevy Chase and the original Griswolds get back together -- VIDEO


We found out, long ago, it’s a long way down the holiday road.

It’s just difficult to believe how long ago that was.

Nearly 30 years have passed since National Lampoon’s Vacation sent Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Dana Barron and Anthony Michael Hall on the Griswold family’s ill-fated trek to Wally World. The kids were replaced for each of the sequels, but now the original clan is back together for EW’s annual Reunions issue.

Cousin Eddie, unfortunately, remains at large.

Check out video of the dysfunctional movie-family’s reunion.


'Horrible Bosses' writers preparing for 'Vacation'

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who penned the summer comedy Horrible Bosses, are in talks to direct their script for a new Vacation film, New Line confirms. Chevy Chase starred in the original franchise, about a well-meaning father and husband whose elaborate plans for quality family-time always fell far short of his own expectations.

Daley, best known from his work on Bones, and Goldstein have never directed a feature before, but their pitch to New Line executives, Variety initially reported, led the studio and producer David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers) to begin talks about putting the duo behind the camera.

It’s unclear whether Chase would have any role in the new film.
