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). You can see the full cast list here.

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.

    The Internship sounds like a classic Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson R-rated comedy. We all know what to expect and I am sure all those that see it will love it. In some genres it is really nice to get be surprised and experience something new, but others it is great to get exactly what you expect. I am sure we will get some slapstick mixed with raunchy and sprinkled with sentiment. We will all get a giggle and isn’t that what comedy is all about?

    Actually, It is not parts of Georgia Tech being used in the movie, It’s Georgia State University that is being used. I attend the school and talked to one of the directors that was on site at that time.

    This movie is being filmed all over Atlanta. I was recently featured in the movie playing the part of “Nick’s Girls”, who happen to be senior citizens residing in a retirement center in Modesto, CA; they Vince Vaughn (Billy) and Owen Wilson (Nick)were trying to sell motorized cars to the senior ladies and on the side closing the deal by offering them some “play time”. Great lines and a fun shoot if it had not been raining and we had to stop the shoot waiting for the weather to clear. The retirement center was actually in Kennesaw. The next day, the Google Office was in Buckhead at the now closed Filene’s Basement on Peachtree. I believe they will still be shooting next week at this location.
