Christina Applegate is in the process of joining Ed Helmes in the highly anticipated sequel to National Lampoon's classic Vacation films. I loved the original John Hughes and Harold Ramis Vacation movie with Chevy Chase, and I really hope this next chapter in the franchise will make a funny addition to it.
Helms will be playing Clark Griswold's grown up son Rusty who takes his own family on a road trip of hilarious misadventures. I guess he just wants to relive those wonderful childhood memories. Applegate will be playing his wife in the story "who might be losing interest in him."
The movie is set to be directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who also wrote the script. They plan on shooting the film this summer and Applegate will make a great addition to the cast. I can't wait to see how this movie turns out!
