Robert De Niro joins Reese Witherspoon in <strong><em>The Intern</em></strong>
Robert De Niro and Reese Witherspoon are in talks to star in The Intern, a project which Tina Fey had once been attached to.

The story follows the owner (Reese Witherspoon) of a fashion website, who starts a community outreach program seeking "senior" interns. While she thinks that high school and college seniors will apply, she discovers that her intern is a 70-year-old man (Robert De Niro) who proves to be quite an asset to her company.

The project was previously at Paramount Pictures until it was put into turnaround. Worldview Entertainment is now financing and producing the film, with several studios in the mix to distribute. Nancy Meyers is directing from her own screenplay, with Scott Rudin set to produce. No production schedule was given.

Robert De Niro can currently be seen in the CBS Films comedy Last Vegas. Reese Witherspoon will next be seen in Devil's Knot and Inherent Vice.
