COUPLES RETREAT

VINCE VAUGHN (Dave/Written by/Produced by) uses a potent combination of charm, charisma and creative acumen to offer a triple threat as an actor, producer and screenwriter.

Vaughn most recently produced and starred in the Warner Bros. hit comedy Four Christmases. The film opened No. 1 at the box office and grossed more than $120 million domestically. In early 2008, Vaughn released the comedy documentary, Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days & 30 Nights—Hollywood to the Heartland. The film follows four stand-up comedians as they travel the country to perform 30 shows in 30 days.

Reteaming with Wedding Crashers director David Dobkin, Vaughn co-produced and played Santa Claus' disgruntled and bitter brother who returns to the North Pole after a long absence in the 2007 film Fred Claus. That same year, he played a supporting role in Sean Penn's critically acclaimed Into the Wild. 

In the summer of 2006, Vaughn starred opposite Jennifer Aniston in the hit anti-romantic comedy The Break-Up. The film opened No. 1 at the box office at $39.2 million and grossed more than $209 million worldwide. Created and produced by Vaughn, The Break-Up was also the first feature film for his production company, Wild West Picture Show Productions.

The following year, the company signed a first-look production agreement with Universal Pictures. In the summer of 2005, Vaughn teamed with Owen Wilson in the runaway comedy hit Wedding Crashers. With a domestic box-office take of more than $208 million, the New Line Cinema release is the second highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time and only the sixth R-rated film in cinematic history to pass $200 million domestically. The film reinvigorated the R-rated comedy arena and went on to become one of the highest-selling DVDs of its genre.

In the summer of 2004, Vaughn starred opposite Ben Stiller in the hit comedy Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story. The film opened No. 1 on its way to grossing $114 million at the box office. He was also seen in the role of villain Reece Feldman in Starsky & Hutch, reteaming with his Old School director Todd Phillips. Starring Luke Wilson and Will Ferrell, Old School kept audiences laughing all summer long in 2003, and has become a modern-day comedy classic.

Vaughn starred as the scene-stealing Raji, a wannabe rap and R&B music producer, in MGM's Be Cool, directed by F. Gary Gray. The ensemble cast included John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Cedric the Entertainer and Andre 3000. Vaughn was also in 20th Century Fox's Mr. & Mrs. Smith, directed by Doug Liman. In the box-office hit, Vaughn played Eddie, the best friend of John Smith, played by Brad Pitt.

Under his first-look production deal with Universal, Vaughn has several projects in development. The slate includes the recently acquired Melissa Marr novel "Wicked Lovely,” a gritty and mesmerizing 21st-century tale of faery intrigue and mortal love. Caroline Thompson will adapt The New York Times bestseller.

A Chicago native, Vaughn first caught the attention of critics and audiences in Doug Liman's independent sleeper hit and cult classic Swingers. In 2001, Vaughn reunited with Swingers screenwriter and costar Jon Favreau in the comedy classic Made, for which he also served as producer.

Vaughn's film credits include Thumbsucker; Domestic Disturbance; The Cell; Psycho; Clay Pigeons; Return to Paradise; A Cool, Dry Place; The Locusts; and The Lost World: Jurassic Park.
