With his run on NBC’s Community revitalizing his long-running career, actor Chevy Chase is looking to use this new stock to move forward a long talked about reboot of one of his most beloved franchises.
In speaking with Collider, the actor revealed that he has an idea for a possible reboot of the Vacation franchise, that sounds a bit different from the script that is currently being put into production.
“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 somewhere who’s been left there from an old Survivor series.”
Now, personally, I am not quite sure a new Vacation flick really is called for. The premise sounds fine, but Chase hasn’t really been at the top of his game, at least not until recently. Overall, it’s a franchise I’m not a huge fan of, so if a reboot happens as planned, I’ll be rather indifferent. What about you though?
