ANOTHER ‘VACATION’ IS PLANNED!

The cast of National Lampoon’s Vacation (1983)

Looks like the Griswold family will be taking another vacation trip. According to Tim 
Briscoe of Videoeta.com, this trip will see son Rusty all grown up and heading his  
own family on a road trip. Briscoe said the L.A. Times reported the writers have
just finished a second draft on the script and that Rusty will have a lot of the 
similarities of his father, Clark Griswold. The writers said the goal is to have
Chevy Chase (Clark) and on-screen wife Beverly D’Angelo both make
appearances at the end of the film.
