Word on the street is that my all time favourite funny guy Chevy Chase has written a new “Vacation” movie, this is not to be confused with the new “Vacation” script from the writers of Horrible Bosses, Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley which would see Rusty, son to Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelos, Clark and Ellen Griswold from the original film, embarking on a new vacation as the father of his own family.
This is what Chevy recently had to say about his new script “I’ve written an idea that would be basically like a “Swiss Family Griswold.” There’s a cruise, there’s a fire on the ship, we think the whole ship’s on fire and we jump—it’s just a little fire—and we end up on an island where we meet Randy Quaid, who plays Cousin Eddie, somewhere who’s been left there from an old ‘Survivor’ series.” It’s not clear if this project is something Chase is actively trying to get off the ground or if he was just being dryly funny, but I’d be down with that some Swiss Family Griswold action.
There is also talk about Chevy appearing in another Fletch movie – OMG Chevy overload. Have I mentioned that I’ve watched National Lampoons Vacation over 55 times now….I’m obssessed, I know.
Buckle up kids, were all going to Wally World!
