BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Locations are key in certain comedies. When a filmmaker is able to shoot in them to achieve authenticity, I donít think itís product placement Ė more of a happy marriage between a recognizable brand and a storyteller who needs their assistance to lend credence to the vision.
As the trailer explains, Vaughn will be playing a guy who donated sperm a long time ago, but due to some mix up at the sperm bank ended up fathering 533 children. Oh, and and some of them are suing to find out who he is. Iím not sure how accurate the legal portion of the plot is, but it seems a bit off.
The script is about "a mild-mannered radio executive" (Ferrell) who wants to be the best stepfather he can be to his wife's children. This becomes complicated when their deadbeat biological father (Vaughn) returns and forces the protagonist to fight for the kids' affection.

While the film was ultimately overshadowed by Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, which was released the same summer and almost instantly earned cult movie status, DodgeBall was actually a bigger winner at the box office, taking in nearly $115 million domestically on a $20 million budget.
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.
When you look at Wedding Crashers from the outside, it really didn't look like much. Starring Vince Vaughn, who had just been in Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Be Cool, and Owen Wilson, who had just come off Meet the Fockers and Around the World in 80 Days, it looked like a dumb comedy with an insane premise that could never work
Certain comedians work better in pairs, and Iím anxiously awaiting what Vaughn and Wilson are able to do with the medium-concept premise. They seem to bring out the best in each other, though director Shawn Levy wisely surrounded them with hilarious talents who should help get the most out of the movie.
Vaughn would headline what sounds like a rework on the fantastic Midnight Run formula, with the funnyman playing a U.S. Marshal who must get a convict to Washington, D.C. after their transport plane somehow explodes. The crook is an environmental criminal, and will be the target of an outside force that begins to hunt the pair down
Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn are now in production on The Internship, which marks their first collaboration since 2005's Wedding Crasher. But how do they plan to top the R-rated comedy that was a box office sensation that also scored with critics?

When crafting an ensemble comedy, you can do a lot worse than having names like Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade, and thatís the exact brilliant cast that director Akiva Schaffer brought to his new film, Neighborhood Watch.
Teen Wolf co-star Dylan OíBrien has been hired to the project to play one of the many interns in the competitive program Vaughn and Wilson join. And in the story, the trade confirms that Levy is set to begin filming on The Internship next week

With the premise well established in the theatrical trailer, Twentieth Century Fox is now reveling in the bizarre comic chemistry these funny men share. In the latest released clip these four fumbling watchmen are on a stakeout, and so are confined to keep undercover in their car. Even when nature calls
Fox announced it will potentially dodge all of the Oscar-friendly films that are piling on top of each other for a Christmas Day release by moving Ang Leeís Life of Pi from Dec. 21 to Nov. 21. Great move. Shifting Pi to the Thanksgiving holiday weekend gives it room to breathe, which it needs.
Once Starbucks gets a hold of the premise, they might want to bring up a preventative lawsuit. DreamWorks is behind Starbuck, which is a remake of a French-Canadian hit about a man (Vaughn) who finds out he has fathered 533 children through his donation to a sperm bank. ďAll these beautiful babies, Mikey. Thatís what I see.Ē The plot twists when hundreds of the children express a desire to meet their biological father.
Weíve seen how the í70ís looks on Vince Vaughn before. Not only did the actor sport a pretty severe mustache in the 2004 feature adaptation of the classic TV series Starsky & Hutch, but he returned to the decade later that year for his role as Wes Mantooth in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.
With his Oscar nomination, 21 Jump Street coming in a few weeks and this movie opening July 27, Jonah Hill is having a hell of a year. And he's in good company too-- as sick as you may be of some of the nonsense Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn has made, they're more than balanced out by the likes of British import Ayoade (of The IT Crowd and director of Submarine) and the talent behind the screen
