Chevy Chase And Beverly D'Angelo Are Back For More Vacation

The long in production Vacation remake starring Ed Helms as a grown up Rusty taking his family on vacation just got a boost. Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo are set to reprise their roles in a movie for the first time since 1997. I can't believe it has been that long since Vegas Vacation. They need to film this movie in Canada so Randy Quaid can be part of it. Of course he will need extra security to deal with the star whackers, but it would be a paycheck for the actor which is something he probably could use. I don't really have any problems with a reboot of the franchise. if you can get some good writers, then why not keep making them.

They MUST get Cousin Eddie on board!

Isn't Ed Helms too old to be Rusty?

Meanie Reese said...

What ever did happen with Randy, his wife and the Starwhacker saga?

StewMcG said...

Puggle, if they're updating the story to 2012 and aging everyone appropriately, then I don't think so. Ed's 39. Anthony Michael Hall, the original Rusty, is 44 and Johnny Galecki, the last Rusty, is 37.

They'll have to film it in Canada so Randy Quaid can be in it.

Renoblondee said...

Hell yeah, I'll watch it!

Amber said...

@Reese - last I heard is that they might get deported from Canada (I forgot why).

That movie had some hilarious stuff in it, but some really disturbing- incest- stuff. And knowing what a tool chase is, and diva dangelo takes away the shine. If it ever had any.

I am so against this, nothing will compare to the original.

auntliddy said...

Amber, reese, prob skipping out on bills again. Oh, and they're nuts.

Lil P said...

It definitely has potential if it's done right. I've always liked these movies

greenmountaingal said...

Yay! I wish they would get Anthony Michael Hall to play Rusty and of course Cousin Eddie. I love the Vacation movies. European Vacation was one of my favorite movies as a kid.

@stewmcg: hearing that Johnny Galecki is 37 makes me feel so old

PuggleWug said...

I had no clue Galecki was 37, he looks a lot younger! I thought Helms was in his mid forties.

VIPblonde said...

Here's a casting idea: have Jon Hamm play one of cousin Eddie's grown-up sons. Because like cousin Eddie, Jon Hamm also has a penchant for wearing too-tight pants that show his bulge :)

This sounds brilliant

I would see this!

While I would love to see as many original actors back as possible (even Randy), I think Ed Helms will really carry the Griswold awkwardness with heart better than Galecki could.

I would love for Juliette Lewis to reprise her role as Audrey. Ooh! And get Jane Krakowski back as Cousin Vicki! If they act fast, Carl Reiner can still get in on it, too!

Reese..Love the new avi.

I can say I have never seen one of these Vacation movies. BUT sometimes you gotta let it die a natural death rather than keep resurrecting it.

Anna Nonymous said...

why the hell not? I would watch it. If something works, and everyone needs a check what's the big?

This is one franchise I don't mind continuing forever. The vacation movies always make me smile. I loved the Old Navy Christmas commercial

anthony michael hall for the Rusty reboot.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

I want Jane Krakowski back as cousin Becki.

feraltart said...

Anthony Michael Hall does back & I might even pay to see it.

kyliegirl1234 said...

I have been wanting them to reprise this with Rusty - but with Will Ferrell in the role.

Erik said...

My friends and I must've watched European Vacation 100 times growing up. "Kids, Big Ben! Parliament!". LMAO.

Jenni OMalley said...

Russ, please don't eat the Family Truckster. I'm trying to work this out on the ol' computer.

First time poster, long time reader. Vacation has pulled me out of lurkerdom.
