"The Hangover" and "Cedar Rapids" star Ed Helms is being mentioned to play a grown-up Rusty Griswold in the Vacation reboot says Deadline.
The original series of 4 films from 1983-1997 followed the Griswold family as they took a summer road trip across America, a European Vacation, stayed home for a Christmas Vacation, (the best of the sequels in my opinion) and a Vegas Vacation with mishaps happening all along the way. Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo starred as the adult Griswolds .
The new version is said to focus on a now adult Rusty Griswold--played by multiple actors over the years by Anthony Michael Hall, Jason Lively Johnny Galecki Ethan Embry.
The update will follow Clark Griswold's son who now has his own family.
Still no word if Chase or D'Angelo will cameo or not.
The film will be written and directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein
