Nick Kroll & Tim Heidecker

If you're not yet convinced that that the reboot of the comedy classic Vacation will be worth your time, some new additions to the cast just might change your mind. Production is already underway on the film that sees Ed Helms playing a grown up Rusty Griswold, son of Ellen and Clark (Beverly D'Angelo and Chevy Chase are reprising their original franchise roles), who is now has his own wife (Christine Applegate) and kids, and sets out to take them on their own vacation. Now Variety reports the supporting cast has just added the quartet of Nick Kroll, Tim Heidecker, Michael Pena & Kaitlin Olsen to the mix. Read on!

Kroll is the star of his own Comedy Central sketch show appropriately called "Kroll Show," Heidecker created and starred in "Tim & Eric, Awesome Show, Great Job!" amongst other programs on Adult Swim, Olson is a series regular on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and Pena is a versatile actor of drama and comedy with films like End of Watch, Observe and Report and American Hustle in his past. That's some great comedic talent coming together for this film, and all of them will be playing cops in the Four Corners (that's the region of the United States where Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah meet.

Combine that with the fact that there's a "Freaks & Geeks" reunion somewhere in the movie, and that the film is directed by Horrible Bosses writers Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley, and this sounds like it might be one of the reboots that actually works. And let's not forget that Leslie Mann is on board as Audrey Griswold and Chris Hemsworth is playing her husband. Production is still underway and Warner Bros. Pictures releases the New Line film in theaters on October 9th, 2015.

      Might be a reboot where if you forget about the title, it's just enjoyable on its own merits.

        Thats a big "might" and I am too cynical about the movies these days. If Im wrong and I always want to be, (me being wrong just means there is another good movie to watch) I will have no problem eating my hat.

    Kroll is somehow on a recent roll. I don't really find his brand very funny, but it should be interesting to see how they are adapted into the film.

    Who cares who's in the cast. Except for the return of Clark and Ellen Griswold, this is gonna suck ass.
