Ed Helms, star of ‘The Hangover’ has signed on to the revamp of the classic comedic franchise, ‘National Lampoon’s Vacation.’
Helms will star in the film as Clark Griswold’s grown up son, Rusty.
The original film was released in 1983 and starred Chevy Chase as Clark Griswold, an ad exec who gets into all kinds of zany situations while taking his family on a cross-country trip to the Wally World theme park.
The original role of Rusty was played by Anthony Michael Hall, and was played by Johnny Galecki, and Jason Lively in the sequels, ‘European Vacation,’ and ‘Christmas Vacation.’
The newest film will feature Rusty planning a family vacation of his own, only to realize he has inherited his father’s trouble-prone ways.
Producers of the new Vacation flick are still working on getting Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo to reprise their roles.
