John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein will direct the Vacation reboot

02.27.2012

The last we heard of the Vacation reboot John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein were scripting. Now it seems that the HORRIBLE BOSSES pair will be directing as well.

At first, it was thought that Vacation would be a remake, thankfully it is not. Instead it is a reboot of sorts with Clark and Ellen's son, Rusty, who will now be going on his own misadventures with his family. Initially I was a little skeptical of a solo Rusty movie then after sitting on it for awhile, I don't mind it so much. Actually, as long as it's not a remake, who cares.

David Dobkin (WEDDING CRASHERS) was originally going to direct the project but moved on. This will be the directorial debut of Daley and Goldstein. The two recently wrote BURT WONDERSTONE starring Jim Carrey and Steve Carrell, and are also working on a sequel to HORRIBLE BOSSES.

Who would you guys get to play Russ? Maybe go a little further and try to cast his wife.

As long as "Holiday Road" blasts tha fuck outta the theater speakers, then I'm down.
Seriously though, use AMH or Ethan Embry and do it right (hard PG-13 like EV/CV). Randy Quaid needs to be in the mix, as the best Vacation movies had him in it. I rank em 3, 1, 4, 2 so I think Quaid had something to do with it. I also like the little details that showed up, like how they used the Christmas Vacation house in Vegas Vacation (and even had the pool in the backyard), the Marty Moose glass in CV,

Maybe Rusty lives across country and is simply trying to get the kids to Chicago to visit Clark, Eddie, etc for a family reunion and hilarity piles on.

Nope

Some things need to be left untouched. Vacation is one of them.

Hey, good, they're not trying to replace Chevy Chase's SIGNATURE performance.

I don't care. Typical cinematic regurgitation.

As much as I like AMH, I don't think he'd do this. Johnny Galecki, on the other hand, has that nervous tick thing down pat, and this movie could be just the thing to ease him into doing movies between Big Bang Theory.

AMH would seem logical and I know it's not meant to be a remake, but AMH is too straight laced, confident, put together, suave, etc. to illicit the same level of comedic buffoonery as Clark Griswold or the original Rusty would. Perhaps John Krasinski or maybe even B.J. Novak?

With the right Rusty (and story of course), this movie could be a big hit.
They should pick up Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo along the way, just like they did with Aunt Edna.
Ahhh... what I'd do to have another adventure with Clark Griswold!

i didn't realize how many people had played rusty in the past. Ethan Embry, Anthony michael Hall, and Johnny Galecki? How could I choose?

I too am okay with the idea. Sure they are doing the Hollywood thing and dipping into the old well again, but at least it's only a little bit. No remake please. And I say bring back Ethan Embry from Vegas Vacation, and maybe Anna Faris. She's cute and funny. Could work
