Wedding Crashers may have taken off because of its endless quotability — I remember a period in the mid-aughts when I couldn’t have a conversation with a college classmate without the film getting referenced at least once — but the reason it remains so watchable today has to do with leads Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson and their easygoing, lived-in chemistry.
Now, seven years later, the pals are set to reunite for Interns, a comedy penned by Vaughn. Vaughn’s Neighborhood Watch producer Shawn Levy is set to helm the picture for Fox. More details after the jump.

Whether or not Kristen Wiig decides to do Bridesmaids 2, what’s obvious is that she’s not wanting for work. The actress-writer-producer is already involved with several intriguing projects, and she may soon be attached to one more.
Wiig, along with Owen Wilson and Christopher Walken, are circling roles in Errol Morris‘ Freezing People is Easy, based on Robert F. Nelson‘s memoir We Froze the First Man and a This American Life segment titled “You’re as Cold as Ice.” Paul Rudd has been set for the lead role of Nelson since last year. More details after the jump.

Zoolander 2 is one of those movies that both the fans and talent involved all really, really, really, really, really, ridiculously want to get made. A script by Ben Stiller and Justin Theroux has been completed for months and everyone is just waiting on Paramount to put the wheels in motion.
While we patiently wait for that to happen, we’ll simply have to get excited by what we already know. The film will primarily be set in Europe and takes place ten years after Derek Zoolander revealed his Blue Steel look and once again took the modeling world. In Zoolander 2, though, neither he or best friend Hansel (Owen Wilson) are relevant anymore, partially because Hansel has suffered a “disfiguring injury” like Tom Cruise’s in Vanilla Sky.
Yes, that last bit is brand new and you can listen to Wilson talk about it after the jump. Read More »
That bird watching movie now has a trailer and apparently it’s about more than just bird watching. The Big Year stars Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson as three friends who decide to take a year off from the lives and do the things they’ve always wanted to do. Which includes, but is not limited to, bird watching. Directed by David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada) the comedy opens October 14. Check out the first trailer and poster after the jump. Read More »
The Devil Wears Prada and Marley & Me director David Frankel has a new comedy coming out later this year that centers around an energetic subculture: bird watchers. OK, perhaps not so energetic. The Big Year stars Owen Wilson, Steve Martin and Jack Black, all of whom are competing in an annual bird-watching event. As a drama it might not be riveting stuff, but as a comedy there’s potential. See the first full image of the three leads below. Read More »

Woody Allen famously has a habit of casting a stand-in for himelf in his comedies, and you can usually tell which one it is — while neuroses and Judaism aren’t requirements, they’re often indications that you’re looking in the right direction. But in case there’s any doubt, Film Drunk‘s Oliver Noble has Woody Allen surrogatism (which is not a real word, but you know what I mean) down to a science. He’s put together a supercut of the director’s stand-ins over the years, from John Cusack in 1994′s Bullets Over Broadway to Owen Wilson in this year’s delightful Midnight in Paris, and pinpointed the essential qualities that mark these characters as Woody Allen surrogates. Jesse Eisenberg*, I hope you’re taking notes. Watch the compilation after the jump.

Just on the off chance that you’d overlooked the fact that a sequel to Cars is being released this summer, Disney and Pixar have released another full-length trailer (after a unleashing a legion of clips and TV spots) for Cars 2. The Disney/Pixar channel on YouTube calls this trailer #4, and who am I to argue? There is some new footage here, and the trailer is cut well, but at this point either you’re on board for Cars 2 or you’re not. If by some chance you’re new to the fact that the film exists, hit the break for the new trailer, or check it out if you can’t wait for the film to open on June 24. Read More »
