Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn’s movie “The Internship” now shooting in Atlanta will soon be filming at Georgia Tech, the college web site reports.
The movie, which also has filmed scenes downtown and in Midtown, is a comedy about guys who get downsized and then start their careers over at the bottom rung. They evidently make the most of their downtime along the way; we’ve seen casting calls looking for extras for a “Gentlemen’s Club” scene this week.
Anyway, the Georgia Tech notice says “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.”
Students, faculty and staff will have access to their offices and dorms but some disruption is possible, given all the gear involved when a production sets up shop. “The Clough Commons Starbucks location is projected to be closed Aug. 7-9 with controlled access possible Aug. 3-19,” the Georgia Tech notice says.
Wilson’s been spotted around town quite a bit since arriving to film “The Internship.” Tipsters have reported seeing him at Lure, Ecco, the Optimist, No. 246 and Empire State South. Also, he’s been spotted riding his bike around town. Not too many Vince Vaughn sightings, although someone did see him buying juice at the Buckhead Whole Foods. Those wild and crazy Hollywood types…
