Attention Collider readers: business is a-boomin’. We’re experiencing some great growth here at the site, which means our content will only be getting better and more extensive in the months to come. This also means that we need a little help behind-the-scenes, so we’re looking for a Los Angeles-based intern to join the Collider team. Job responsibilities will include helping to transcribe interviews, helping out on red carpets, pitching in at Comic-Con, offering sacrifices to the Movie Gods, and the like. You won’t be doing the same thing day-in and day-out, so flexibility and a sense of adventure are key.
Applicants will need to have a car, be willing to travel in and around the Los Angeles area, and you’ll need to be able to make working at designated times a priority. Hit the jump to find out how to apply.
Update after the jump
Wedding Crashers fans, lock it up. Stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are reuniting for the 20th Century Fox comedy, The Internship. Directed by Shawn Levy (Real Steel) and based on an original script by Vaughn, The Internship finds Vaughn and Wilson playing two old-fashioned salesmen who haven’t kept up with the digital age. When they suddenly become unemployed, they attempt to remake themselves by interning at a major tech company. Steve sat down with the director for a recent interview in which he talked about the project, previously titled, Interns. Levy’s 21 Laps Entertainment and Vaughn’s Wild West Picture Show will produce with shooting scheduled to begin June 25th. Hit the jump for the press release.
We’ve been bringing you a multitude of updates from director/producer Shawn Levy regarding his upcoming projects over the past few days, and today we’ve got some fascinating info on a couple more films in development. Steve recently sat down for an extended interview with Levy in which he talked about a Real Steel sequel, Frankenstein, Fantastic Voyage and Interns, The Ten Best Days of My Life starring Amy Adams and Home Movies, the animated re-imagining Kong, The Devil You Know and Fancy Nancy, and yesterday we brought you what he had to say about Table 19, Kodachrome, and Mr. Men.
Today we’re sharing what Levy had to say regarding his untitled Hugh Jackman project that’s being written by Lost co-showrunner Carlton Cuse, an adaptation of How to Talk to Girls, Henchman starring Bill Hader, a Deadliest Warrior movie, Neighborhood Watch, and Levy reveals what’s likely to be his next directorial project and discusses the difficulty of getting Frankenstein and Fantastic Voyage into the production stage. Hit the jump to see what he had to say.
Coming off the success of Date Night and Real Steel, director Shawn Levy has a number of high-profile projects on his plate. He’s been attached to a 3D remake of Fantastic Voyage for quite a while, with James Cameron onboard as producer, and he’s set to take on a new iteration of Frankenstein. While Levy became involved in both of these projects last year, we haven’t heard much about their status as of late. Steve recently got the chance to sit down for an exclusive interview with Levy regarding the Best Visual Effects Oscar nomination for Real Steel, and the director talked quite a bit about what he has coming up. Yesterday we ran the portion of the conversation where Levy discussed the visual effects in Real Steel and the status of the Real Steel sequel, and today we’ve got updates on a few more of his upcoming projects.
Levy revealed that he’ll be using motion-capture SimulCam for the monsters (plural) in Frankenstein, and he also talked about how they’re tweaking the development status of the film in response to the competition project I, Frankenstein starring Aaron Eckhart. In addition, Levy talked about his ambitious practical effects approach to Fantastic Voyage, and revealed that he may actually film the comedy Interns with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson this summer. Hit the jump for much more.
Wedding Crashers buddies Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are set to reunite for Interns, with Shawn Levy (Real Steel) directing. As a producer, Levy is currently in post-production on the Vaughn-led comedy Neighborhood Watch. Levy was hoping to make Frankenstein next, but Vulture hears that he’ll have to cut the $80 million budget before Fox is willing to consider the project. Vaughn is in a similar position since The Inane Laws is reportedly having trouble getting off the ground over at Universal. (The rumor mill whispers that Vaughn is still demanding a Wedding Crashers-era paycheck in the wake of The Dilemma.) The serendipity led Vaughn and Levy back to Fox to pitch Interns, a comedy that Vaughn wrote about fortysomething friends who get laid off: “Convinced they’ve gone about managing their careers entirely wrong, they resolve to become interns at a Google-like dotcom and start anew.” Hijinks ensue when Vaughn and Wilson compete against “wily, fresh-faced 22-year-olds” to advance in the company.
Vaughn and Wilson have shown interest in re-teaming, but 2 Guns somehow transformed from a Vaughn/Wilson vehicle to an actioner starring Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington. Interns sounds like a suitable replacement, with a fruitful premise for their style as a comedy duo.
