Vince Vaughn Developing Interns
He's reuniting with Owen Wilson

Vince Vaughn Developing Interns

The combination of Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson worked well for Wedding Crashers, so you’d imagine that any studio would be eager to have them reunite. It seems that 20th Century Fox will be the lucky recipients of some development changes, with Vulture reporting that it has secured the duo for Interns.

The plot will see Wilson and Vaughn play two fortysomething corporate types whose cushy jobs suddenly come to an end when they get downsized. They decide to take stock of their lives and switch tracks, taking up intern positions at a Google-style tech company. But while they figure their experience might serve them well, they’re suddenly thrust into competition with web-savvy, cutthroat, 22 year-old ladder-climbers.

Vaughn wrote the script and had apparently put it into development with Universal. But then another project he was working on for the studio – Jeremy Garelick’s The Insane Laws – fell apart due to budget issues. That film hit the turnaround showers and Interns was sent along with it.

Now Fox has pounced thanks to Vaughn’s new relationship with Neighbourhood Watch producer Shawn Levy. Levy has also reportedly been having budget issues over his planned Frankenstein film, so he’s after another job. Levy’s had more than a little box office success (if not so much critical love) for his comedy work, so this could be a decent combo.

There has been no official announcement, so all this is currently floating in the ether between rumour and truth, but with Fox on the hunt for more comedy hits, it could potentially be a big winner for them. Let’s just hope it’s more like Wedding Crashers and less like The Dilemma. In every sense.

Really?
The Wedding Crashers was awful. Vince Vaughn hasn't done anything decent since Dodgeball and as for Owen Wilson, the last thing I saw him that didn't completely suck was Hall Pass. I'm not saying Hall Pass was great though, far from it. More
