Vacation series to be rebooted

Horrible Bosses' writers to take you on a hilarious holiday… apparently

New Line Cinema are planning to reboot the iconic Vacation film that originally starred Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo.

The Horrible Bosses sequel could be on hold as writing duo John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein will make their directorial debut on a new version of Vacation, based on a script that they first pitched in 2009.

The 1983 original saw the Griswold family's holiday road trip spiral out of control from camel riding to S.W.A.T teams. Vacation went on to spawn three sequels: European Vacation, Christmas Vacation and Vegas Vacation.

Daley and Goldstein's script is rumoured to bring back the Griswolds, only with a new generation led by Rusty Griswold, the son of Chevy Chase's Clark from the original film.

There's no news yet on whether Chase or D'Angelo will reprise their roles in cameo form to pass the Vacation torch over to their son.

Do we need yet another reboot? Who could top Chevy? Tell us, below.

      With good casting and solid writing I wouldn't mind seeing a new Vacation movie for the 2010s crowd. When I first saw "reboot" I thought they were just going to remake Vacation. But I feel better about the "passing the torch/sequel/reboot" idea.

      So when you said "F**k no", you actually meant "yes"?
