We probably all put the news of an Ed Helms-starring Vacation reboot far in the back of our minds after hearing it, but the film is becoming more and more real every day. It’s now slated to being shooting in September, and it won’t just be Ed Helms with a camcorder in his garage.

Nope. The producers of the franchise of Chevy Chase films have cast, in addition to Helms as grown-up son rusty, Christina Applegate as his wife, Chris Hemsworth as his sister Audrey’s husband, and Charlie Day with a small part as a rafting guide.

So there’s gonna be rafting? Sweet!

Of course, Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo are expected to make cameos, though what the hell they’re going to do remains a mystery. Probably just hang around the old folks home or something, talking about that cat in the Jell-O mold.

What’s the point of dating Earth’s most gorgeous women if you don’t even get the chance to frolic in the waves with them? Thus, Leonardo DiCaprio has announced that he is taking a break from acting.

I am a bit drained. I’m now going to take a long, long break. I’ve done three films in two years and I’m just worn out,” DiCaprio tells  German magazine Bild (which features this image on its cover):

DiCaprio says he wants to spend that time traveling and raising environmental awareness. “I would like to improve the world a bit. I will fly around the world doing good for the environment.” In a private jet. That burns fuel. And leaves chem trails.

Meanwhile, the tipsy mommy who the fire department needed to rescue will travel around Germany raising awareness about the dangers of sitting in child seats. (via Deadline)

Ed Helms In Talks For The New ‘Vacation’ Movies http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/ed-helms-in-talks-for-the-new-vacation-movies/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/ed-helms-in-talks-for-the-new-vacation-movies/#comments Thu, 12 Jul 2012 17:12:39 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=249720 There was a time when National Lampoon films didn't suck. Let's harken back to that era.

After National Lampoon has made every attempt to sully the reputation of everything it had ever touched with crap like Dorm Daze and Pledge This! the remnants of the magazine’s only lauded property, the Vacation series, are set to rise from the ashes with a reboot/sequel-y type of thing.

With Lampoon‘s track record, that would normally be cause for an audible groan, but the fact that Ed Helms is in talks to play Clark Griswold’s grown son Rusty in the coming installments gives some hope to the project.

In case it’s not clear, Rusty would be the focus and patriarch of the next installment, after almost 15 years since Chevy Chase regaled us with Vegas Vacation.

Is Randy Quaid going to reprise his role? I heard he’s available!

The best orgy-based comedy to come out in quite some time, A Good Old-Fashioned Orgy, will be available soon on Unrated DVD. But if you want awkward sex, the magical world of the movies has plenty of delightful options for you. It can range from funny to sad to just bizarre, but a good awkward sex scene sticks in your memory, probably forever. Here are some of the most awkward, intentional or otherwise

Check out all the Sony “Action Unleashed” DVDs!

Vacation

Clark Griswold probably doesn’t get to do it with his wife that often – after all, they are married. So when the opportunity presents itself, Sparky doesn’t let the fact that they’re crammed in a tiny sleeping bag with a feral mutt at their feet stop him. The result is one of the funniest awkward sex scenes around, although they admittedly don’t get that far into the amorous process. Damn dog.

Pusher II

Tonny’s been in jail for a while, and it hasn’t exactly been good for his sex life. The possibly permanent brain damage he suffered at the hands of a friend he sent upriver isn’t helping either. That becomes painfully clear in this harrowing scene, in which Tonny struggles dutifully to get it up in front of two prostitutes. It’s a pretty tough scene to watch – in fact, “awkward” is probably an understatement.
