Paramount lands Tina Fey’s “The Intern” comedy

PanARMENIAN.Net - Paramount Pictures is making a deal to finance and distribute The Intern, which Nancy Meyers will direct from her script, with Tina Fey attached to star. Scott Rudin will produce.

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 real senior, 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.

While the boss and internship develop a platonic bond, to Meyers this is a love story about the friendship they develop, Deadline reported.
