"Sometimes the longshots pay off the biggest."
The 2005 comedy Wedding Crashers marked the first pairing of actors Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, which became a huge hit, earning $285 million in worldwide box office. Strangely, the two actors had yet to reunite until the upcoming The Internship, which posits the duo as as two unemployed 40-somethings that get internships at Google (which apparently did NOT fund the movie despite its presence in the poster, first image and, now, its first trailer).
Despite taking a break from appearing together, The Internship feels like familiar territory for Vaughn and Wilson, but that probably won't be a problem for their fans. watch the trailer >> Posted 02.13.13 by Ryan
Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson have a brand new boss and it's Rose Byrne.
Entertainment Weekly reports Byrne (Bridesmaids, X-Men: First Class) is in final negotiations to join the upcoming comedy The Internship, which will follow Vaughn and Wilson as two unemployed 40-somethings that decide to start their careers over by getting low-level positions at a Silicon Valley tech firm. Byrne will play a high-ranking executive who becomes Wilson's love interest. Joanna Garcia (Reba, Royal Pains) will play Vaughn's love interest, though whether it's another inter-office romance is unknown.
The Internship was written by Vaughn and will have Shawn Levy (Real Steel) in the director's chair when shooting begins on July 9th. The movie is the first reunion between Vaughn and Wilson since 2005's Wedding Crashers. Posted 06.30.12 by Ryan
Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are reuniting, but it's not for a Wedding Crashers sequel. According to Vulture, the pair will star together in the comedy Interns. Vaughn and Wilson will play two forty-something guys who are downsized and decide to take on a whole new career path. They wind up in internships at a large dot com where they are forced to compete against fresh-faced recent college grads in their efforts to climb a new corporate ladder. The script was written by Vaughn, who also wrote Couples Retreat, and will be directed by Shawn Levy.
The premise sounds like a mashup of a Friends rerun and an SNL skit about "the YouTube generation," but it also sounds pretty funny. Besides, any story on the big screen that's at least mostly original is a breath of fresh air with all of the remakes and sequels that have taken over the box office lately, and you can't beat the laughs that a Vaughn and Wilson comedy conjure.

Thanks to the critical and financial success of The Fighter, director David O. Russell now has his pick of follow-up projects and it appears that his next two features could be a one-two punch of video game and comic book adaptations. Although there was talk that he would next direct Old St. Louis, an original comedy that he wrote that would star Vince Vaughn as a traveling salesman.
After dropping out as director of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the heat generated from The Fighter makes it far more likely that he will concentrate his efforts on Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, a live-action adaptation of the Playstation 3 game that will star Mark Wahlberg. Now, THR is reporting that Russell is "in negotiations" to rewrite and direct 2 Guns, Universal’s adaptation of the Boom! Studios comic book that has Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson attached to star in it. what is 2 Guns all about? >> Posted 01.18.11 by BrentJS
