Anne Hathaway is in talks to replace Reese Witherspoon in Nancy Meyers’ workplace comedy “The Intern” at Warner Bros. Pictures.
Hathaway plans the owner of an Internet company who gets assigned an intern who’s a retiree (De Niro). He becomes a valuable resource and the two develop a relationship.
Witherspoon left the project mid-January due to scheduling. Hathaway did a table read with De Niro and Meyers last week that went well. Scott Rudin will produce.
