Leslie Mann in talks for Vacation

First time directors (and the writers who got the project moving in the first place) John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are now hard at work preparing the new Vacation, a story that finds Ed Helms (The Hangover) as the older Rusty Griswold taking his own brood on a trip. The film has been missing someone to play his sister Audrey, but now Leslie Mann (This Is 40) is in talks for that role.

Serving as both a sequel and a semi-reboot of the franchise, this Vacation finds the characters from the 1983 John Hughes comedy as adults, with Helms married to Christina Applegate (Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues).

Audrey, who was previously played by Dana Barron (Twice), Dana Hill, Juliette Lewis and Marisol Nichols, will here be married to news anchorman Stone Crandall (Chris Hemsworth).

Charlie Day (Pacific Rim) is planning to make a one scene cameo in the film, while Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo are likely to show up as Rusty and Audrey's parents, Clark and Ellen Griswold. Daley and Goldstein are set to kick off production next week in Louisiana.

Mann was last seen in The Other Woman and is attached to star in bounty hunting comedy Las Madres.
