Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo are in early talks to return as Clark and Ellen Grisworld in the upcoming "Vacation" reboot at New Line Cinema.
This chapter focuses on their now adult son Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms), who takes his wife (Christina Applegate) and children on their first road trip family vacation.
Along the way, they make a pit stop to see Clark and Ellen. While both characters were in the script, the actors did not enter into negotiations until recently.
John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein will make their directorial debut on the project, working from their own screenplay.
