The story is essentially a hybrid of a sequel and a reboot, with Ed Helms portraying a grown-up Rusty Griswold, who takes his own family on a vacation to Walley World, just like his childhood trip portrayed in 1983's Vacation. Christina Applegate will play Rusty's wife who may be losing interest in her husband.
The character Rusty Griswold was portrayed by a number of very different actors throughout the original franchise, including Anthony Michael Hall in Vacation, Jason Lively in European Vacation, Johnny Galecki in Christmas Vacation, and Ethan Embry in Vegas Vacation.
