    'Get Smart' & 'Tommy Boy' Director Pete Segal In The Mix For 'National Lampoon's Vacation' Reboot

    Ah, the Griswolds. From the spate of '80s comedies, no family is more memorable than the clan headed up by Chevy Chase in four films that saw them heading to Europe, Vegas and spending the holidays together in their uniquely dysfunctional way. The franchise has been quiet ever since the 1997 entry "Vegas Vacation" but early in 2010 it kicked back to life. It was reported that Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley -- whose Black List script "Horrible Bosses" is now in theaters -- were tapped to write a reboot, produced by David Dobkin ("Wedding Crashers," "The Change-Up") that would focus on Rusty Griswold (played by Anthony Michael Hall, ...

    'Bridesmaids' Director Paul Feig: "I Want To Show Hollywood There's A Market For Female Comedies"

    While much of the conversation surrounding Friday's genuinely brilliant "Bridesmaids" focuses around its superstar producer, Judd Apatow. And while Apatow had a guiding hand, with the film initially sprung from a development deal the producer struck with co-writer/star Kristen Wiig after her scene-stealing turn in the Apatow-directed "Knocked Up," the man behind the camera is none other than Paul Feig.
