‘Vacation’ reboot begins filming in Atlanta next week


After being delayed last year, the National Lampoon’s Vacation reboot is back on and starting production in Atlanta, GA on Monday.

Ed Helms stars in the movie as an all grown up Rusty Griswold who leads his wife Debbie (Christina Applegate) and their two sons, played by Skyler Gisondo and Steele Stebbins, on a cross-country trip to Walley World.

According to recent casting calls, Vacation will begin filming in Atlanta on Monday. And, thanks to one of our readers Mark, we’ve learned the reboot will shooting at the Olympic Flame Restaurant on Marietta Blvd in Atlanta (which was also used in Anchorman 2) on Tuesday, Sept. 16. Signs posted in the restaurant say they will be closing at 2:00 PM for filming.

  1. Watching Ed Helms and Christina Applegate get familiar with SUV they will use in the Vacation movie. They are filming 4 houses down from my house. I can watch everything from from my front window. Oh and the kids in the movie are here too! Exciting!
