A whole new generation of Griswolds are headed for Walley World, and the red band trailer for the “Vacation” reboot shows off plenty of nostalgia for fans of the original, as well as meta in-jokes and plenty of euphemisms.
John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are writing and directing the reboot of the classic 1983 comedy. They’ve previously written “Horrible Bosses” and “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” together, but it’s the team’s feature directorial debut.
Helms stars in the film as Rusty Griswold, the grown up son of Clark and Ellen Griswold, played by Chase and D’Angelo in the original. Though Chase and D’Angelo will reprise their roles in cameos, this film will follow Rusty’s family, which includes feuding sons played by Skyler Gisondo and Steele Stebbins.
Charlie Day and ‘Victorious’ star Elizabeth Gillies are also in the film. Producers are Chris Bender and David Dobkin. Jeff Kleeman is executive producing.
The new “Vacation” will be released on Oct. 9.
