The story centers on two longtime company men, who are laid off due to downsizing and face an uncertain future. The duo decide to become interns at a Google-like internet company to start their careers anew, where they find themselves going up against twenty-somethings eager for advancement.
Shawn Levy will direct from an original script written by Vince Vaughn. The comedy was initially set up at Universal, who recently put the project in turnaround, when it was quickly snatched up by Fox. Shawn Levy produced the summer comedy Neighborhood Watch, which stars Vince Vaughn.
No production schedule was given for Interns.
