The Watch hits UK cinemas on August 24th, but ahead of that a red band blooper/improv reel has been released, showing Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and co having fun on the set. Here’s the synopsis: ‘An outrageous comedy in which four everyday suburban guys (played by Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade) come together to form a neighbourhood watch group, but only as an excuse to escape their humdrum lives one night a week. But when they accidentally discover that their town has become overrun with aliens posing as ordinary suburbanites, they have no choice but to save their neighbourhood – and the world – from total extermination.’
Vince Vaughn has snapped up the rights to Ridley Pearson’s new novel The Risk Agent for an adaptation which he plans to star in and produce. Michael Lerner has been hired to adapt the screenplay, according to Deadline.
The story is set in Shanghai, China and sees a Chinese National, working for an American construction company, get kidnapped in broad daylight. The plot follows Grace Chu, a forensic accountant, and John Knox, a combat operative, hired by Rutherford Risk to recover the hostage. It isn’t known what role Vince Vaughn will play at this time, but presumably he’ll play Knox.
The novel was published last month in the US, and will be the first in a series of books, so this could potentially be a franchise.
20-year-old Dylan O’Brien has gained quite a few fans thanks to playing Stiles in MTV’s Teen Wolf. He might get a few more now, as Variety reports that he has joined the cast of The Internship for director Shawn Levy.
Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson will star as two unemployed salesmen who become interns at a high-tech company in an attempt to reinvent themselves. Dylan O’Brien will play one of the other interns. Max Minghella, Josh Brener, Tiya Sircar and Torbit Raphae are also set to star.
Shawn Levy is directing from a screenplay by Vince Vaughn, with both serving as producers. Production is scheduled to begin this week, with a US release of June 28th, 2013 already set.
The Internship will start shooting next month, and so director Shawn Levy is busy putting together the supporting cast, with Variety reporting that Max Minghella, Josh Brener, Tiya Sircar and Torbit Raphael are all in various stages of talks for roles in the movie.
Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are set to star as two old-school salesmen who, finding themselves suddenly unemployed and passed-by in the digital world, try to reinvent themselves by becoming interns at a major tech company.
Social Network and Darkest Hour star Minghella will play a ruthlessly competitive fellow intern who wants to sabotage who he sees as older intruders. Josh Brenner meanwhile will be one of the other newcomers, who helps our heroes out. It’s now known who Sircar or Raphael will play.
The Watch looks like it could be fun, with Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade as members of a suburban neighborhood watch group that serves as a front for dads to get some male-bonding time away from their families. The group finds itself in over its head when it uncovers an alien plot to destroy the world. A new international trailer has now shown up, ahead of the film’s release on August 29th.
After a Florida Neighbourhood Watch leader shot a black teenager in Florida, Fox decided this might be problematic with it’s planned film, Neighbourhood Watch. Cue a title change to The Watch and now a new trailer that sells the sci-fi angle of the film far more than anything that could in anyway be construed as vigilante action. The film is about a suburban neighborhood watch group that serves as a front for dads to get some male-bonding time away from their families. The group finds itself in over its head when it uncovers an alien plot to destroy the world.
Vince Vaughn’s film career has been very variable, but it’s still good to hear when he got a new project in the works. He’s now in talks to headline DreamWorks’ remake of the 2011 hit French-Canadian comedy Starbuck, according to Variety.
The original is about a middle-aged man who has fathered 533 children through sperm donations. Given the nickname Starbuck, he struggles to decide if he wants to meet a couple hundred of his children, who have come forward in seeking him out.
It’s definitely a premise that could make an interesting movie. Original co-writer and director Ken Scott will remake his own film for American audiences. It isn’t known when the film will shoot.
You’d have thought Hollywood would have run out of old TV shows to make movies out of, but there are a few left. One of those is The Rockford Files, which Deadline reports Vince Vaughn has now signed on to star in and produce a movie version of.
Rounders screenwriters Brian Koppelman and David Levien will write the script for the big screen version of the series. The original show ran from 1974 to 1980 and starred James Garner as private detective James Rockford, who worked from his mobile home near the Malibu beach and used his unique blend of charm and wit to talk his way out of trouble and solve crimes.
The main reason it’s taken this long to get a movie off the ground is that NBC was planning on a reboot of the series The Rockford Files on TV, although that was shut down last year.
Ever since Wedding Crashers in 2005, Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson have been flirting with projects that would reunite them on screen. Now it’s finally going to happen, as they’re both set for 20th Century Fox comedy The Internship, which it’s just been announced begins shooting June 25th.
Night At The Museum and Real Steel helmer Shawn Levy will direct, with Vaughn and Wilson as two old-school salesmen who, finding themselves suddenly unemployed and passed-by in the digital world, try to reinvent themselves by becoming interns at a major tech company. The film is based on Vaughn’s original script.
Levy is also attached to the likes of Frankenstein and Fantastic Voyage, but chose to put the less tech-heavy Intership first. (Source: Variety)
The first poster and promo for this summer’s action comedy, Neighborhood Watch, have arrived, and while they don’t tell us much about the plot, they do reveal that perhaps Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade are taking the whole idea of Neighborhood Watch way too seriously. The guy guys set up the group as an excuse to escape their humdrum lives one night a week. But when they accidentally discover that their town has become overrun with aliens posing as ordinary suburbanites, they have no choice but to save their neighborhood – and the world – from total extermination. The movie is due out August 22nd.
