    National Lampoon's Vacation to be remade...Sadly

    UK, February 11, 2010 - The Griswold family looks set to return to cinemas, with New Line planning a reboot of the classic Vacation franchise.

    The series kicked off in 1983 with National Lampoon's Vacation, which revolved around the dim and somewhat accident-prone family - led by Chevy Chase as patriarch Clark Griswald - travelling across America to visit theme park Wally World.


    It was followed by three sequels, National Lampoon's European Vacation, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and National Lampoon's Vegas Vacation, although the new film will apparently drop the Lampoon moniker.

    The reboot will return the franchise back to its roots, with son Rusty - now a man with a family of his own - heading back to Wally World before it closes forever. It's thought that Chase will also return for a cameo as Clark.

    Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley, who have several projects set up at New Line, will write, with Wedding Crashers helmer David Dobkin producing.

    I think this sums up my feelings.

    Way too many remakes and reboots going on lately. Where is the originality these days?

    Er, the original was made in 1983 and spawned 3 direct sequels, plus some with Cousin Eddie. The lack of originality seems to have started about 25 years ago.

    That said, more power to them if they get Anthony Michael Hall back as Rusty. Doing that would be more of a true sequel than a reboot or remake. Sounds like the press people - either who wrote this article or at New Line - would rather throw buzzwords around.

    True, but sequels are one thing. The trend with countless remake after remake seems to have started more recently. At least with sequels there is some originality because they are continuing the original story with a new story, not retelling the same thing from the beginning.

    I just can't see them having Rusty going through a carbon-copy adventure of what his father went through.

    That's why I said it sounds like a true sequel to the original -- and that words like "reboot" or "remake" are being thrown around kind of recklessly to look like they're doing something really modern and cool.

    I guess I should have read the article and not just the title. Yeah, this sounds more like a sequel then a remake.

    Will probably suck but it's not a remake or a reboot in my opinion. It's another sequel.

    I'm in agreement with Luris... This is NOT a remake or reboot, people! It's a continuation... A remake would be a movie about Clark Griswold and his family going to wallyworld, but it would be totally different people playing clark and ellen, and totally starting out the story from scratch.... This is a continuation... This is a sequel.. nothing more..

    Now... I can't say I think it's a good idea for a sequel, mind you...

    I just cannot get behind this. Yes, a sequal following Rusty's family is an interesting idea but it won't capture the feeling the originals had. They were 80s filcks. Good films from back then had a certain quality to them that made them stand out. As much as film makers may try, they cannot get that feel back. I'm sure this will be a nice comedy, but it won't stand up to the classics.

    Our immortality is found in the words and actions of our children.

    You see relatives at holidays, weddings, and funerals, but family is always with you.

    Do not steal, rape, or murder. Everything else is fair game.

    Facing failure is easier than running from regret.
