The last time Anne Hathaway worked in fashion on screen, it was for The Devil Wears Prada (2006). This time around she is playing the boss, with Robert De Niro (Heat) as the newcomer hoping to make their mark on the office.
Nancy Meyers is behind the new comedy, which stars Hathaway as Jules Ostin, the founder of a fashion site who needs some new help around the office. Which is where 70-year-old widower Ben Whittaker (De Niro) comes in, a man that has found that retirement isn't all he might have hoped for, and has decided to get back in business. But the position of senior intern at Jules' web business doesn't immediately seem to be the perfect fit.
It's certainly fun to see the two Academy Award® winners sparking off each other, and there is a solid cast around them that includes Rene Russo (The Thomas Crown Affair), Andrew Rannells (Bachelorette), Adam DeVine (Pitch Perfect), Nat Wolff (The Fault In Our Stars), Anders Holm (The Interview) and Reid Scott (My Boys).
The Intern will be out on 2 October.
