Does The World Need A “National Lampoon’s Vacation” Reboot?

Well, whether you want one or not, it looks like you’re getting one.

New Line Cinema has signed “Horrible Bosses” screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldsmith to direct a resurrected version of the 1980s raunch comedies that provided Chevy Chase with steady employment and steadily diminishing returns and teenaged boys of the era with fantasies of Christie Brinkley in a sports car.

According to, the new movie will focus on Rusty Griswold, now a grown man, who decides to take his kids on a road trip to Wally World (made famous in the first film) before it closes forever. Chase is expected to show up as Clark Griswold, now a grandfather, ComingSoon reports.

In case you needed reminding of the original:
