Directed by Shawn Levy, The Internship movie is a comedy about two men in their forties who get laid off. Looking for new jobs, they decide to try and make it as interns in a very successful online company. It has been confirmed that the internet company featured in the movie is none other than search engine giant Google. So far, no film has ever been made about the company. However, dont think or expect this upcoming movie to be like The Social Network which chronicled the founding and rise of Facebook. In The Internship movie, Google only works as a backdrop to the story. In short, its not about Google. Its about a pair of men in their forties working as interns in the comedy. And of course its a comedy. Youd think that if they ever make a Google movie, it will be a serious one.
Shawn Levy who is helming the film is a fairly good comedy director. His works include the Night at the Museum movies, The Pink Panther and Cheaper by the Dozen. Its going to be interesting to see how he will fare with this Google movie. Levy also directed the movie Date Night which starred comedy royalties Steve Carell and Tina Fey. Although the film was rather forgetable, it contained enough funny scenes to keep the viewer from getting bored. Levy is a work-in-progress and he seems to be improving with every comedy film he puts out there. Lets just wait when The Internship movie hits theaters in 2013 and find out if well get more laughs from it this time.
The Internship stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. Its a highly anticipated reunion as the two comedians proved that they are the perfect comedic duo when they appeared in the smash hit 2005 comedy called The Wedding Crashers. The movie grossed over 285 million dollars worldwide. It stands as one of the highest-grossing comedies in the past decade. Rumors kept on coming out about a sequel but they never materialized. It may not be The Wedding Crashers 2 but The Internship will surely show off the same Vaughn-Wilson chemistry. They were great in The Wedding Crashers, theres a huge chance theyll be great in The Internship movie too.
According to reports, the film shot majority of the scenes at Georgia Tech. The website of the college has posted that the movie will be filming at various places within the school. These include the Ford Environmental Science and Technology Building, the Noonan Courtyard and the Klaus Advanced Computing Building.
Also in the cast are Rose Bryne (28 Weeks Later, X-Men: First Class, Insidious, Get Him to the Greek), Dylan OBrien (Teen Wolf), JoAnna Garcia Swisher (Not Another Teen Movie) and Jessica Szohr (Tower Heist).
The Internship movie will hit theaters in 2013.
