Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn took comedic chemistry to new heights in 2005's blockbuster "Wedding Crashers." Between Vaughn's motormouth riffs and Wilson's unbeatable enthusiasm, we expected these giants to be onscreen best buds for years to come.
Seven years later, they're finally taking the plunge, as Deadline reports the two will reunite for a promising high concept laugher called "The Internship."
Directed by Shawn Levy ("Night at the Museum," "Real Steel"), the film follows Vaughn and Wilson as "two old school salesmen who find themselves suddenly unemployed and unschooled in the digital world who try to reinvent themselves by becoming interns at a major tech company."
The duo were expected to get together again back in 2007 for the Mexico-set satire "Outsourced," but dropped out months before production.
In the years since "Wedding Crashers," both Vaughn and Wilson have had uneven careers. Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" was an unexpected smash for Wilson while "Marley & Me" won audiences over with puppy dog charm, but actual dogs like "How Do You Know" and "The Big Year" took the wind out of his sails. Vaughn's "Four Christmases" and "Couples Retreat" were modest hits before he experienced a "Dilemma" at the box office.
Much like their crasher characters, maybe these two have realized how much their friendship means to each other (and audiences).
