Anne Hathaway Will ‘Intern’ With Robert De Niro Instead Of Reese Witherspoon

Anne Hathaway Will 'Intern' With Robert De Niro Instead Of Reese Witherspoon

At one time slated to star Tina Fey before it stalled out … and revived again last fall with Robert De Niro and Reese Witherspoon only to wind up losing the actress a couple of months later, it has been a bumpy ride for Nancy Meyers‘ “The Intern.” But it seems every time a door closes, a bigger one opens.

THR reports that Anne Hathaway is now in talks to replace the vacancy left by Witherspoon. Penned by Meyer as well, Hathaway will play the founder of a fashion-based e-commerce company who agrees to a community outreach program where seniors will intern at the firm. De Niro will play the new hire, and his elderly character becomes indispensable at the firm, with a friendship forming between the founder and the old timer. Aww. Feelings will be felt, and lessons learned.

The project is set up over at Warner Bros., and while there is no production start slated, we presume that with this cast, the studio won’t want to be sitting on this too long.

Hathaway is attached to a couple of way better projects. I dont think she's gonna do this. It doesnt seem to be in her league.
