That long-rumored "Vacation" reboot is a rumor no more: The film has finally begun production in Georgia.
The flick stars Ed Helms as a grown-up Rusty Griswold, and Christina Applegate plays his wife, Debbie. According to the film's official plot synopsis, Rusty is "Following in his father's footsteps and hoping for some much-needed family bonding," so he "surprises his wife ... and their two sons with a cross-country trip back to America's 'favorite family fun park,' Walley World."
And while nothing is official yet, actress Leslie Mann is reportedly in talks to join the flick, too, as Rusty's sister, Audrey Griswold. The role would see the adult Audrey married to a man described by The Hollywood Reporter as "an up-and-coming anchorman named Stone Crandall."
Crandall will be played by Chris Hemsworth, Charlie Day will play a river rafting guide, and Skyler Gisondo ("Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb") and Steele Stebbins ("A Haunted House 2") will play Rusty's sons. And the original Grisworlds will also be reprising their roles, with Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo set for cameos as Clark and Ellen.
The as-yet-titled "Vacation" flick is written and directed by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley ("Horrible Bosses," "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2"). No release date has been set.
