Tina Fey to star in Nancy Meyers ‘The Intern’ For Paramount Pictures

Nancy Meyers is a busy lady – she’s got this film officially on the go at Paramount who are going to finance and distribute and she’s about to direct THE CHELSEA with Felicity Jones.

The big winner for THE INTERN is that Meyers has landed comedy it girl Tina Fey for the lead.

Deadline describes the film as: Fey will play the founder of an e-business with a fashion focus. As her company begins to thrive, she’s told that her company is importing seniors to be interns as a community outreach effort, and she’s getting one. While her first question is whether they are seniors in high school or college, she learns to her horror that she’s getting a realsenior, as in senior citizen. The title character, an over-70 widower who is bored with retirement from a middle management career, initially seems like a fossil to his working mother boss, but grows more indispensable. – Mike Fleming

Meyer has a string of femme skew comedy drama hits with IT’S COMPLICATED, THE HOLIDAY and SOMETHING’S GOTTA GIVE under her belt.
