The actress will portray a successful e-business owner, whose company starts a community outreach initiative to bring in "senior" interns. While the businesswoman thinks she'll have a high school or college senior assistant, she discovers her intern is a senior citizen, a 70-year-old man who finds retirement boring. They quickly form a bond of friendship, as the intern proves to be invaluable in many ways.
Nancy Meyers will direct The Intern from her own original screenplay. Here's what the filmmaker had to say about setting this new project in the world of e-commerce.
"It seemed more interesting than having to see yet another thing set at an ad agency. Tina's character is much younger than me, but I was attracted to the pressures the character feels with her business, her husband and kids, and seeing all this from the point of view of a man who has been through it."
It is believed the project will start shooting sometime in the first quarter of 2013, when the actress wraps on 30 Rock.
