Vacation: Sequel Delayed Because of Rating Talks
The necessity of Chevy Chase's involvement in the series Community is heavily discussed not only by fans. Rumor has it that there's some tension behind the scenes now and then, as well. The comedian's prime is well and gone for more than two decades now. One of his most famous films until this day surely is Vacation that got three sequels until 1997, including the probably best Christmas comedy of all times - Christmas Vacation. All four films have in common that the good-natured family man Clark Griswold (Chase) wants his family to have the perfect holiday experience. However, his clumsiness is the reason that all the effort ends in a catastrophe.
16 years after the last installment, Hollywood thought that it might be time for another sequel. It focuses on the now grown-up son Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) as the main character. The original parents will surely have small roles, as well.
Initially, the shoot should have been underway this summer but there are delays now. The makers want to design the movie for an "R" rating. The jokes don't have to be toned down and the Hangover movies show that this can be successful. On top of that, the original was rated "R", too (the sequels weren't, though. PG-13, PG-13, PG). The studio is the counterparty and eyes a commercially attractive PG-13.
And because the both sides can't compromise at this time, the shoot can't start in the summer and could be postponed until next year, as Collider reports.
