Last November Reese Witherspoon entered talks to join The Intern, replacing the previously attached Tina Fey. However now Witherspoon has moved on too due to scheduling issues, but they may have found a good replacement as THR reports Anne Hathaway has joined the workplace comedy.
The movie is about the owner (Hathaway) of a fashion website, who starts a community outreach program seeking ‘senior’ interns. She’s thinks that high school and college seniors will apply, however she gets a surprised when she discovers that her intern is a 70-year-old man (Robert De Niro), who proves to be surprising asset to her company.
Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway have already conducted a table read for the director, which is said to have gone extremely well. Nancy Meyers (Something’s Gotta Give) is set to direct.
