Hemsworth and Day take a Vacation

Chris Hemsworth and Charlie Day have signed up for the Vacation film reboot.

The two actors will join Ed Helms in the revamp of the 1980s comedy series, which starred Chevy Chase, said The Hollywood Reporter.

The Hangover actor Ed is already on board to portray a grown-up Rusty Griswold, the young son of Chevy's character Clark Griswold.

Thor star Chris, who has apparently been looking to do a comedy, is tipped to play Stone Crandall, an up-and-coming anchorman and the husband of Rusty's sister Audrey, while Charlie will make a brief appearance as a river rafting guide.

Christina Applegate will play Rusty's wife. Chevy and Beverly D'Angelo are to make cameos in the movie, which will begin shooting in September after having been delayed by creative differences over the film's rating.

The new film, which will be written and directed by Horrible Bosses' John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, will follow Rusty as he brings his own family for a holiday, similar to the ones he took as a child.

Chris has completed shooting Ron Howard's Moby Dick-inspired drama In The Heart Of The Sea and will reprise his superhero role as Thor in Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

Charlie, who appeared in Pacific Rim, will next be seen in Horrible Bosses 2 alongside returning co-stars Jason Bateman and Jason Sudeikis.
