De Niro, Witherspoon Hire An “Intern”

Robert De Niro is circling and Reese Witherspoon is in discussions to star in filmmaker Nancy Meyers’ next directorial effort “The Intern” for Worldview Entertainment.

Meyers wrote the script which centers on the owner of a successful fashion website (Witherspoon) who bonds with the elderly intern her company has hired (De Niro).

The project was originally setup at Paramount with Tina Fey attached to star. Now it has become a fairly pricy $30 million independently financed film which Scott Rudin is producing.
