Risky Business header

Honestly, we might never see a better summer than 1982. Almost every single weekend, Hollywood released a would be classic: The Thing, Blade Runner, E.T., the list goes on and on. And when something is that successful, what does Hollywood do? Release a sequel, of course. That’s exactly what the Alamo Drafthouse is doing this summer.

After last year’s successful Summer of ’82 screening series, this year will mark the Summer of 1983 screening series. Starting with the 30th anniversary of Return of the Jedi, the Drafthouse’s various locations will screen movies such as Scarface, Risky Business, Octopussy, The Deadly Spawn, WarGames, National Lampoon’s Vacation, Jaws 3D and others.

It’s unclear how long the delay will take, but for now all of the talent remains attached. Writers Jonathan Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are set to make their directorial debut on the film, with Ed Helms and Christina Applegate in the lead roles.

Ed Helms in Talks for ‘Vacation’ After All

A few months back, we got word that Ed Helms was being eyed for John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein‘s Vacation reboot/sequel. But Helms shot down the casting soon afterward, saying that he’d heard “nothing” about it and that he had “no idea” where the press had gotten that impression.

Now, however, it’s looking like we were on the right track the first time. According to a recent report, Helms has just been cast as protagonist Rusty Griswold, the grown-up son of Chevy Chase‘s Clark Griswold from the first film. Read more after the jump.

As of now, the two have completed the second draft of their script, and New Line is actively seeking a director for the project. Read more after the jump.
