Watch: Ben Schwartz Pitches Films to Owen Wilson & Vince Vaughn
Wedding Crashers stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are reteaming this summer for The Internship, which feels a bit like an unofficial sequel to the 2005 comedy. Shawn Levy is behind the camera this time for the story of two middle aged guys struggling to stay employed in a fast-moving, technology-based world. But before that script came along, Wilson and Vaughn were on the hunt for a project, and Ben Schwartz (Jean Ralphio from "Parks & Recreation") had a whole slew of good ideas for them including The Hobbit, and a buddy comedy with Abraham Lincoln and John Wilkes Booth. Watch it!
Vince Vaughn & Owen Wilson play 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.
The Internship is directed by comedy/family filmmaker Shawn Levy, of Cheaper by the Dozen, The Pink Panther, Date Night, all two Night at the Museum movies so far, and Real Steel previously. The screenplay was co-written by actor Vince Vaughn and Jared Stern (of Mr. Popper's Penguins and The Watch). 20th Century Fox is opening The Internship in theaters everywhere starting June 7th this summer. Good stuff?
