Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson Reteam for ‘The Internship’

Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn in Wedding Crashers'
New Line Cinemas

‘The Wedding Crashers’ was one of 2005′s biggest movies and made over $200 Million – which was a surprise for an R-rated comedy. Well timed and with a great cast, the film starred Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, and it’s surprising that the two haven’t worked together as co-leads again. So there should be some excitement in their re-teaming for ‘The Internship,’ which starts shooting this summer.

The film is to be directed by Shawn Levy, which may be the only drawback. To be fair, Levy grew as a filmmaker with ‘Real Steel,’ though it wasn’t a hit domestically. And Levy taking on the project is a surprise because he had at least two projects in the wings before this announcement, a new take on Frankenstein written by Max Landis, and a remake of ‘Fantastic Voyage’ – which may have been sunk (for now) by ‘Steel’ not hitting domestically. ‘Steel’ was one of a number of recent films that had a script for the sequel commissioned before the film hit theaters. Perhaps Levy took ‘Internship’ on because it was quicker to launch.

The good news is the film comes from a script by Vaughn himself. The Hollywood Reporter notes that the film is about two old-timey salesman left behind by the digital era, and so – to reinvent themselves – they get internships. This sounds ripe for the sort of jerky but amusing comedy that Vaughn has mastered. Expect it sometime in 2013, likely in the summer.
