Report: “Horrible Bosses”, writers in negotiations to pen re-boot for “National Lampoon’s Vacation”, New Line in search of director…

The writers behind the film, “Horrible Bosses”, John Francis Daily and Jonathan Goldstein, are in negotiations with New Line studios to write the script for the, “National Lampoon’s Vacation” reboot. The next “Vacation” film, will focus on a full grown Rusty Griswold, taking his family on a vacation. Chevy Chase himself, have teased many times in interviews that there is a new “National Lampoon’s” movie in the works. Look like he isn’t lying after all!

The Hollywood Reporter, reports.

It would make a lot of sense if they can get Anthony Michael Hall, to reprise his role as Rusty. Anthony is a full grown adult now. I hope they can get Anthony. I also hope, Chevy will reprise his role as Clark in some way. Give Clark Griswold a small appearance, at least, ’cause I can’t see a Vacation movie without the great, Clark Griswold. I love the vacation movies. Especially the first one.

It would also be great if they bring back Bevery D’Angelo (Ellen), and Dana Barron (Audrey). Bring back the original cast!

The first Vacation movie by Harold Ramis, is one of my favorite comedy films of all time. Love the film too much, especially John Candy’s appearance at the end. Lets hope they do a good job with the re-boot.

Edit to add: Btw, the new film needs to open with it’s original theme song, Lyndsey Buckingham’s “Holiday Road”. If that song is not in the film, it’s not a vacation movie!

Report: “The Breakfast Club” cast reunites for the first time in 25 years!!!

There’s Anthony Michael Hall, Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy and Judd Nelson, all who have starred in one of my favorite movies of all times, “The Breakfast Club”. The cast reunited to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the legendary film directed by, John Hughes. The cast reunited to attend an event at the Film Society of Lincoln Center in NYC to pay respects for, John Hughes, who died last year.

The only one who didn’t show up was, Emilio Estevez. Why didn’t Emilio show up? I believe he’s in Canada to promote his new directed movie, “The Way” starring his father, Martin Sheen. More on it here. Maybe Emilio got too caught up in that and didn’t have the time to travel to New York to attend the Breakfast Club event. I’m sure the rest of the cast asked Emilio to attend the John Hughes event, but Emilio, just released a new movie. I’m pretty sure Emillio wanted to attend, though.

If you want to see what Emilio Estevez looks like now, see the video of him below. Yep, Emilio hasn’t changed a bit. He still looks the same as he did in the “Breakfast Club”.

RIP: John Hughes 1950 – 2009

Legendary 80’s film maker, John Hughes, is another icon gone this summer. He died in New York City while out for a morning stroll in the streets of Manhattan, he fell and suffered a heart attack. He was staying in NYC for a little while to visit family members.

John Hughes is the director of such iconic movies as, “The Breakfast Club”, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”, “Uncle Buck”, “Plains Trains and Automobiles”, “Curly Sue”, and more. If it wasn’t for John, then stars like Anthony Michael Hall, Macaulay Culkin, Mathew Broderick, and Molly Ringwald wouldn’t have gotten their fame.

The same goes for rock bands like the Psychedellic Furs and Simple Minds. John Hughes included the Simple Minds song “Don’t You Forget About Me” for the “Breakfast Club” movie, which the song became an essential hit song of all times.

John Hughes was one of the most talented film makers in Hollywood back in the 80’s. John hasn’t directed a new movie since 1991’s “Curly Sue”, but he has written a handful of scripts over the years.
