Let's bring it in for the real thing. Again. After crashing weddings and sweeping Isla Fisher and Rachel McAdams off their feet in Wedding Crashers, the dynamic comedy duo of Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are back together for a new comedy. A short press release was sent our way today to announced that Vaughn and Wilson would lead The Internship, a new comedy set up at 20th Century Fox with Shawn Levy (Real Steel) set to direct. Filming will begin this June, and this just might be the first time Levy ventures into R-rated comedy, something I've been hoping for since the strip club scene in Date Night.
The film could almost serve as an unofficial sequel, or even prequel to Wedding Crashers as it follows 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. Vaughn, who also wrote the script himself, is producing through his Wild West Picture Show Productions along with Levy and his 21 Laps Entertainment banner. Hopefully this isn't simply a retread of the the same humor we saw in Wedding Crashers as Vaughn's fast-talking, awkward conversations have gotten a little old, but I always have high hopes with comedies like this. And honestly, I think Levy belongs in raunchy, vulgar comedy. Thoughts?
