New 'Vacation' Movie Runs Into Problems Surprisingly Not Caused by Chevy Chase

A new Vacation movie scheduled to shoot this summer has been delayed indefinitely, and, to the surprise of everyone, noted difficult person Chevy Chase is not the root of the problem. THR reports that shooting on the film, which is set to star Ed Helms as grown-up Griswold spawn Rusty taking his wife (Christina Applegate) and kids on a road trip to Wally World, will be delayed at least a few months – possibly until late this year. The reason for the difficulties is creative differences caused by a split between those who want the movie to be R-rated like the original and those who want a broad PG-13 comedy. THR doesn't say who's on what side. Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo were in talks to cameo in the new Vacation film as Clark and Ellen Griswold. Chase is presumably not involved in these creative differences, making this the first Chevy Chase movie to have non-Chevy Chase problems.

    I don't think this can be made pg-13. Unless they want a terrible version of the original. I don't even think an r-rated one would be good.

    They cannot make it a pg-13 type kid movie. These movies have a strong enough following from the past few decades where it is not needed. This will draw huge older crowds if they stick with the original formula.

      Christina Applegate as Ed Helms wife is a little of a stretch tho. Cousin Eddie better make an appearance!

    Why isn't Anthony Michael Hall playing Rusty??

    Are they going to film part of it in Canada, so Cousin Eddie can be in it? I believe he's still on the lam.
