Will Ferrell To Cameo In 'The Internship' With Vince Vaughn & Owen Wilson Plus More Casting Updates

The paths of Will Ferrell, Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson have crossed many times in movies such as “Wedding Crashers,” “Zoolander,” “Starsky & Hutch,” “Anchorman” and “Old School.” And lucky for us, they will all be meeting up once again. Ferrell is slated to take a cameo role in currently lensing “The Internship,” the movie that finds Vaughn and Wilson playing recently downsized men in their forties who try to make it as interns at a successful Internet company where their managers are in their twenties. So who will Ferrell play? Well, he’ll be “Wilson’s brother-in-law, who sells home electronics and has no problem making inappropriate comments about his attractive customers.” So improv heaven — sounds good to us. Lensing is underway on the Shawn Levy-directed movie which should hit theaters sometime next year.

Meanwhile, in other casting news: Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (“Lost,” “Oz“) has joined Jennifer Hudson, Anthony Mackie, Jeffrey Wright and Jordin Sparks in “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete.” The George Tillman Jr.-directed film follows two inner city youths are who are left to take care of themselves for the summer when their mothers are taken away by the authorities. It’s now rolling in front of cameras.

The always awesome Kathryn Hahn (“Wanderlust,” “My Idiot Brother“) has bagged the leading role in “Afternoon Delight,” in which she’ll play a bored housewife looking for some excitement. Jill Soloway (“United States Of Tara,” “Six Feet Under“) wrote the script and will make her directorial debut.

Finally, Michael Ealy and Regina Hall have joined Kevin Hart in the remake of “About Last Night.” The original flick, directed by Edward Zwick and released in 1986, starred the brat pack duo of Demi Moore and Rob Lowe, was based on David Mamet’s play “Sexual Perversity in Chicago,” and told the tale of the up-and-down relationship of a couple through their first year. Leslye Headland (writer-director of the upcoming “Bachelorette”) penned the script, but a director is still being sought.
