All My Children fans have anxiously been awaiting more details on the project that brought All My Children alums Jacob Young (ex-J.R. Chandler) and Alexa Havins (ex-Babe Chandler) together again earlier this spring, and more information has finally been revealed.
Lifetime has announced that the pair's film is a thriller called Killer Vacation that is scheduled to debut on Friday, November 23.
"This was such a fun film to shoot, loved working with Alexa again," shared Young on Twitter. "It's was just like the old days on All My Children."

Killer Vacation follows a successful businessman named Jake (Young) who takes his pregnant girlfriend Lindsey (Havins) on a 'babymoon' to an upscale desert resort. But when Jake's ex-wife suddenly appears, the couple's peaceful getaway takes a deadly turn. What was meant to be a dream vacation turns into a nightmare when it becomes evident that someone plans to make sure Lindsey never uses her return ticket back home.
Young and Havins will no doubt light up the screen as Jake and Lindsey, seeing as how the two played on-again, off-again Pine Valley couple J.R. and Babe for many years in the early 2000s. As fans may recall, the beloved AMC pair experienced major drama during their memorable romance, including a love triangle with J.R.'s stepbrother, Jamie Martin (played by Havins' real-life husband, Justin Bruening).
Havins played the role of AMC's Babe from 2003 to 2007 and made a brief return in 2011. Her more recent credits include Castle, Constantine, The Astronaut Wives Club, and the British sci-fi series Torchwood: Miracle Day.
Young got his start on soap operas as The Bold and the Beautiful's Rick Forrester in 1997. He later went on to play General Hospital's Lucky Spencer from 2000 to 2003 and All My Children's J.R. from 2003 to 2011. After AMC's cancellation, he reprised his role as B&B's Rick Forrester and is currently on recurring status with the CBS soap opera.
Fortunately for AMC fans, Young and Havins' on-screen reunion isn't the only bit of recent Pine Valley nostalgia they can be thankful for. Young recently invited another of J.R. Chandler's portrayers, Jonathan Bennett, to his virtual talk show Daytime After Dark. And Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley Vaughan) recently featured an AMC reboot spoof on her talk show, Live! with Kelly and Ryan.
