Paramount Pictures will finance and distribute Nancy Meyers’ “The Intern” with Tina Fey attached to star reports Deadline.
Fey will play the founder of an e-business with a fashion focus who is told that her company is importing senior citizens to be interns as a community outreach effort.
Her personal intern is an over-70 widower bored with retirement from a middle management career, but he ultimately grows more indispensable to her and the pair develop a platonic bond.
Meyers directs from her script while Scott Rudin will produce, shooting will take place in early 2013 once Fey completes work on the seventh season of “30 Rock”. As reported earlier this week, Meyers also plans to direct the dramedy “The Chelsea”.
