After switching to big effects and family drama territory for Real Steel, Shawn Levy is back in comedyville for The Internship, which reunites Wedding Crashers duo Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. The first teaser poster is online over at Collider and below.
The Internship finds Vaughn and Wilson as two old-school salesmen who have been content to coast through their careers so far. But when they discover that their ways are no longer relevant in the digital world, they’re downsized and must try to re-enter the job market.
They target the tech industry, looking to score positions as interns in a big, Google-style company and hoping that their skills will somehow make them competitive again. But that won’t be easy in the backstabbing world of young go-getters, which includes the likes of Max Minghella, Aasif Mandvi, Jessica Szohr and Dylan O’Brien. John Goodman and Eric Andre are also among the cast.
We’re hoping that Wilson and Vaughn can once more bring the funny and that the culture-clash setting means more comedy. The Internship is out on July 4.
