Set to be released in October, the first National Lampoon’s Vacation movie in 18 years will feature the sixth Rusty Griswold in the series, Ed Helms (here’s a few fun facts on all six Griswolds, including Ethan Embry, who had a better Rex Manning Day this week than you.)

The reboot will see Rusty and his wife (Christina Applegate) go on a family vacation with their kids and their parents (returning stars Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo). They will pick up sister Audrey (Leslie Mann) and her husband (Chris Hemsworth) along the way. Charlie Day also stars in the film written by former Freaks and Geeks star John Francis Daley, whose track record as a screenwriter is decidedly mixed (he wrote the two Horrible Bosses movies, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 and the dreadful The Incredible Burt Wonderstone).
