Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo in Talks to Reprise ‘Vacation’ Roles (EXCLUSIVE)

Ed Helms is currently attached as Rusty Griswold

After much speculation, it looks like Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo will reprise their roles as Clark and Ellen Griswold in New Line’s “Vacation” reboot.

Chase and D’Angelo are in early talks to join Ed Helms and Christina Applegate in the comedy with “Horrible Bosses” scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein on board to helm from a script they penned.

The new version of the Griswolds’ “Vacation” adventures will follow grown-up son Rusty (Helms), who now has his own family misadventures on the road, which includes making a pit stop to see his mom and dad.

Though the roles are more on the cameo level, there was concern when it wasn’t clear whether Chase and D’Angelo would return to the franchise they started 30 years ago. After the budget was set and script was given a polish, the producers redoubled their efforts to include them in the reboot.

David Dobkin will produce through his David Dobkin Prods.

Over the holiday season, the duo appeared in Old Navy spots with cast members reuniting from various “Vacation” movies.
