Witherspoon will take on the role of a successful fashion website founder, to which Tina Fey was originally attached.

As part of a new programme, the entrepreneur hires a senior citizen (De Niro) as an intern.

Meyers has also directed It's Complicated, The Holiday, Something's Gotta Give and What Women Want.

De Niro can currently be seen in The Family and Last Vegas, and will next appear in Grudge Match.

Witherspoon will star in the upcoming Devil's Knot.

The Intern will enter production in early 2014.
