The Hollywood Reporter -- Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo are in negotiations to reprise their classic roles of Clark and Ellen Griswold for New Line's reboot of Vacation.
Ed Helms and Christina Applegate are starring in the movie, which will be directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein.
The sequel-cum-reboot follows the son of the Griswold clan, Rusty (played by Anthony Michael Hall in the original and now by Helms), as he takes his family on a road trip similar to the one he and his parents and sister took when he was young.
At one point, he visits his parents, with his dad giving him Griswoldian advice.
The casting of Chase and D'Angelo is no surprise as it was always New Line's intention to nab the duo for cameo roles.
