Tina Fey to Headline The Intern


Nancy Meyers will write and direct the Paramount Pictures comedy The Intern with Tina Fey set to star, Deadline reports.

The plot sees Fey starring as the founder of a successful company who, as part of a new program, takes in a senior citizen to be her intern.

The news arrives less than 24 hours after word broke that 20th Century Fox is planning a similarly-titled comedy, The Intership. Whether one project will cause the other to change its title remains to be seen.

To be produced by Scott Rudin, The Intern is planned to go into production early next year.
