First-time directors (and the writers who got the thing moving in the first place) John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are now hard at work preparing the new Vacation, a story that finds Ed Helms as the grown Rusty Griswold taking his own brood on a trip. The film has been missing someone to play his sister Audrey, but now Leslie Mann is in talks for that role.Serving as both a sequel and a semi-reboot of the franchise, this Vacation finds the characters from the 1983 John Hughes comedy as adults, with Helms married to Christina Applegate.Audrey, who was previously played by Dana Barron (twice), Dana Hill, Juliette Lewis and Marisol Nichols, will here be married to news anchorman Stone Crandall, set to take the shape – assuming his deal has gone through – of one Chris Hemsworth. Nice going, Mann!Charlie Day is planning to make a one-scene cameo in the film, »
Ed Helms is the star of the movie, playing Rusty Griswold, as he and his wife (Christina Applegate) plan their own WallyWorld vacation. The film will also include appearances by original stars Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo as the Griswold Grandparents.
John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein will make their joint directorial debut on the comedy from a screenplay they wrote themselves. John Hughes wrote the original 1983 Vacation, which was directed by Harold Ramis.
We’re hearing news that Audrey Griswold has been cast in the new Vacation movie, which is about to kick off shooting Stateside. It’s a role which will have been played by no less than five actresses (of differing ages) across six movies over the years, and because we’re a sucker for all things Vacation, we thought we’d bring you up to speed on who has played the only daughter of Clark and Ellen Griswold in these fabulous motion pictures, before revealing the identity of a 40-plus-year-old Audrey, who has apparently just been cast earlier on today.
Fyi, Vacation (2015), stars Ed Helms as Rusty Griswold, Christina Applegate, a returning Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo (Yes!), Chris Hemsworth (who will play the husband to Audrey) and Charlie Day.
Let’s have them Audreys.
