A new movie, written by Vince Vaughn, called The Internship, is currently filming, and Google is the company that provides the backdrop for the story. It sounds like the movie will be more comedy than reality-based, and it will be interesting to see what they’ve come up with. In an interview with the Huffington Post, Vince Vaughn, who also stars in the film, said, “Owen [Wilson] and I lose our jobs and become interns at Google. We get free food, we get to play ping pong and take naps … We find a way to get into the intern program and try to get a job there. It’s fun to go back and do some R-rated comedies again.”
Some of the film is being shot at Georgia Tech. The school reported earlier this week:
Parts of Georgia Tech will soon be transformed into a movie set as 20th Century Fox begins production on “The Internship,” starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson.
Set preparations for the movie will begin this week, with production scheduled to wrap up on Aug. 24. Filming will take place at the following locations: Campus Recreation Center, Ford Environmental Science and Technology Building, G. Wayne Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons, Klaus Advanced Computing Building, Leadership Challenge Course, Noonan Courtyard and the Marcus Nanotechnology Building.
Someone from Georgia Tech posted a couple of images on Reddit (including the one above), showing a Google logo (hat tip to 9to5Google). The user (bport) wrote, “My college being turned into the set for a Vince Vaughn/Owen Wilson movie called “The Internship” where they play Google interns.”
In addition to Vaughn and Wilson, the movie also stars Rose Byrne, Dylan O’Brien, JoAnna Garcia Swisher and Jessica Szohr (to name a few).
The film is being directed by Shawn Levy, who has directed such films as Real Steel, Date Night, the Night at The Museum movies, The Pink Panther, Cheaper By The Dozen and Just Married (which starred Ashton Kutcher, who is playing Steve Jobs in a different upcoming film).
The storyline, according to IMDB, is as follows:
Two recently laid-off men in their forties, try to make it as interns at a successful Internet company where their managers are in their twenties. The film is scheduled to be released sometime next year.
