‘National Lampoon’s Vacation’ Saga Reluctantly Handed Over To ‘Horrible Bosses’ Writers

We surrender....TO COMEDY! 

Good news for people who like lackluster news! Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the minds behind the pretty funny Horrible Bosses, are on tap to take over the National Lampoon’s Vacation franchise, which has been largely forgotten over the years, especially considering the decades-long revelation that Chevy Chase is extremely unlikable.

The new Vacation will focus on a grown up Rusty Griswold, who will carry the torch his father passed by taking his own family to Wally World, with predictably disastrous results. Of course, the burning (and itching) question is: Who will play Rusty?

A brief list of suggestions:

  • Jonah Hill
  • Delroy Lindo
  • Jean Dujardin
  • Chevy Chase’s actual kids, if he found a women to love him long enough to make them
  • Maybe Ben Stiller‘s brother
  • Chris Pratt (my choice)
  • Joel McHale
  • Charlie Day
  • Justin Long

Yeah. Still not very fired up about this one.
