New Line Cinema has tapped Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley to write the studio’s Vacation reboot. The franchise was launched in 1983’s with the Chevy Chase starrer National Lampoon’s Vacation. The franchise would go on to spawn three sequels. The latest installment will go without the “National Lampoon” credit and is described as more of an update than a sequel: [Variety]:
…[Vacation] will be closer in tone to “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” than the previous chapters. Story will focus on Rusty Griswold, now a grown man, who decides to take his own wife and kids on a road trip to Wally World before it closes forever. Chase is expected to reprise his role as Clark Griswold, now a grandfather.
