Vince Vaughn Takes Yet Another High Concept Comedy With Business Trip image
Iím not sure anyone has been standing around going, ďDammit, itís 2013! We need three, possibly four Vince Vaughn movies with mid-to-high concepts. Stat!Ē But thatís just what happens in 2013, it looks like. Vaughn apparently took the critical lambasting of his last two films Ė The Watch and Lay the Favorite, if youíll recall Ė to mind and is kind of on a roll here lately, possibly reclaiming the comedic legitimacy he one juggled.

There isnít anything in the world funnier than travel mishaps, right? Well, just pretend there isnít. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Vaughn is in negotiations to star in New Regencyís Business Trip. The film doesnít yet have a director, but the hunt will begin once Vaughn is signed, and heíll assist Regency and production company Escape Artists ProductionsĖ founded by Todd Black, Steve Tisch and Jason Blumenthal Ė to secure one. The filmís bare bones plotline is a guy goes on a European business trip and madcap hijinks ensue.

The screenplay was written by Steve Conrad, most famous for penning 2006ís feel-good biography The Pursuit of Happyness, and he also wrote 2005ís Nic Cage dramedy The Weather Man, both of which were made in association with Escape Artists. Conrad also wrote the screenplay for Ben Stillerís upcoming comedy The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

Stiller is the segue back to Vaughn, who will be starring in the next film from Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum), the old vs. young Google comedy The Internship, which premieres June 7. Heíll also be in Kat Coiroís romantic comedy A Case of You, which will premiere at this yearís Tribeca Film Festival. Finally, heíll also star in Ken Scottís Delivery Man, in which heíll play the unwitting father of over 500 children.

Dare I say Vince Vaughnís 2013 is money, baby?
