Chris Hemsworth and Charlie Day in Talks to Join VACATION Reboot

Thor’s got jokes, you guys.  Chris Hemsworth is looking to tackle a full-on comedy, as word comes that the actor is currently in negotiations to join the cast of the Vacation reboot/sequelHorrible Bosses and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein wrote and are making their directorial debut on the film, which stars Ed Helms as the grown Rusty Griswold who sets out to take his family on a road trip similar to the one he took with his family when he was younger.  You know, the one that ended with his father taking a nice security guard hostage and forcing him to take his family on all the rides at Wally World.

Hit the jump for more on Vacation, including who Hemsworth is playing and the addition of a Horrible Bosses veteran to the cast.

chris-hemsworth-vacationPer THR, Hemsworth will be playing the husband of Rusty’s sister Audrey in the film.  That part has not yet been cast, but apparently Hemsworth had been itching to do a comedy for some time.  He’s certainly shown flashes of comedic chops in The Avengers and the Thor films for Marvel, and he was excellent in the F1 racing film Rush.

In addition to Hemsworth, Charlie Day is also in negotiations to join the cast of Vacation.  He will cameo as a river rafting guide in the film, which also stars Christina Applegate as Rusty’s wife.  Vacation veterans Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo are expected to make cameos themselves as Clark and Ellen Griswold.  The pic was delayed last year when Daley and Goldstein couldn’t come to an agreement with New Line about the rating, but it appears that the issue has been cleared up as production is scheduled to begin in September.  No word on whether it will be R or PG-13, but the scribes have excelled at handling comedies of both kinds.

Hemsworth will next be seen onscreen in the Michael Mann thriller Blackhat on January 16, 2015 followed by Ron Howard’s adaptation of In the Heart of the Sea on March 13th, and of course Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1st.  Day, meanwhile, reprises his role in the comedy sequel Horrible Bosses 2 when the pic hits theaters this coming November 26th.

    Hemsworth plays a guy Rusty’s wife swoons over, and Day will play a nefarious drug-using character that they pick up somehow along the way (or hitch a ride with). Too easy.

    Why not get Anthony Michael Hall to play a grown up Rusty? Duh!

    I actually am excited at Helms taking over the reins on the Vacation semi/reboot. I think he could really channel similiar mannerisms that Chevy Chase had in the original. It’s also nice that it’s about Rusty and not trying to do a straight up remake. I love the orignal and the Christmas films as they are just hilarious to watch so it’ll be nice for a new generation to enjoy the same.

    I kinda felt like the “We’re the Millers” movie filled this gap. Rebranded and with a few rewrites it could have been a “Vacation” movie all day long.
