At this point I am iffy on what New Line is proposing. New Line wants to make a new version of Vacation. They don't want to mess with the original. What they want to do instead is to have Rusty begin his own Vacation adventures with a family of his own. New Line envisions bringing in Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo to kind of pass the torch top the kids and let them have their own vacations.
I think it could be good. I also think it could be horrendously bad if not done correctly. The executive on the movie says that Vacation is the movie he has watched more than any other in his life so that is a plus. The negative is that I don't want the original ruined and I think by making it Rusty instead of Clark they can preserve the original. There is talk that the guy who directed Wedding Crashers will be brought in to write and maybe direct the new version of Vacation.
Like I said, I'm iffy on this but I can be swayed.
