VACATION is an upcoming adventure comedy reboot which marks the directorial debut of Horrible Bosses writers Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley. It is the fifth theatrical installment of the National Lampoon’s Vacation series.
The next generation of Griswolds is at it again. Following in his father’s footsteps and hoping for some much-needed family bonding, a grown-up Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) surprises his wife, Debbie (Christina Applegate), and their two sons with a cross-country trip back to America’s “favorite family fun park,” Walley World.
Rounding out the cast are Leslie Mann as Rusty’s sister, Audrey; Skyler Gisondo and Steele Stebbins as Rusty’s sons, James and Kevin; with Chris Hemsworth in the role of Stone Crandall, Rusty’s irritatingly successful brother-in-law, Beverly D’Angelo and Chevy Chase as Ellen and Clark Griswold from the classic Vacation comedies.
