Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn Headed for Internship
Posted 02.08.12 by Mandy
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.
