Vince Vaughn & Owen Wilson had a big hit with Wedding Crashers and now it appears they want to team up again for Interns, which Vulture reports they’re working on together, with Real Steel and Night At The Museum director Shawn Levy set to helm.
Vaughn also wrote the script, which is about ‘Vaughn and Wilson will play forty-ish company guys who both get laid off in a downsizing. Convinced they’ve gone about managing their careers entirely wrong, they resolve to become interns at a Google-like dotcom and start anew. Suddenly, the two old chums are competing against wily, fresh-faced 22 year olds for advancement.’ With the comedy duo’s chemistry, it could work exceptionally well.
It appears the movie may go ahead fairly soon, as while Levy was due to direct a new take on Frankenstein next and Vaughn was preparing for a film called Insane Laws, both of those movies fell apart due to budget issues. At the same time, while Universal owned the rights to Interns, they recently cut it loose, with 20th Century Fox snapping it up and using the fact Vaughn, Wilson and Levy are all suddenly free to swoop in and get the film made as soon as possible. So expect to hear more casting news soon.
