Ed Helms is set to star as a grown-up Rusty Griswald in the upcoming sequel/reboot of Vacation, and now Christina Applegate has entered talks to take on the New Line film’s female lead. The story finds Rusty taking his own family on a road trip to Wally World, and THR reports that Applegate is poised to star as Rusty’s wife, described as “strong-willed” and “losing interest” in her husband.

During a recent interview with the screenwriters, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein stated that they hope to bring back some of the franchise’s original castmembers in this new film (ie. Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo). Applegate is currently filming Anchorman: The Legend Continues. Production on Vacation begins this June in New Mexico and Atlanta.
