January 15, 2014   •  Category: Role RumorsComments Off on Reese Witherspoon No Longer Attached to Nancy Meyers’ ‘The Intern’

Reese Witherspoon No Longer Attached to Nancy Meyers’ ‘The Intern’

Nancy Meyers’ “The Intern” may have hit a snag, as sources tell Variety that star Reese Witherspoon is no longer involved in the project.

The Warner Bros. comedy was supposed to star Witherspoon and Robert De Niro but insiders tell Variety Witherspoon recently passed on the project, adding that her schedule likely pushed her away from the film.

Sources indicate the studio may approach “Bridesmaids” star Kristen Wiig as a replacement, but no offer has been made.

The news puts Meyers and the studio in a bit of a pickle, given that the movie was originally packaged as a Witherspoon-De Niro property before WB came on board. Witherspoon’s involvement is said to be a key reason the studio acquired “The Intern.”

The film was originally set up at Paramount with Michael Caine and Tina Fey circling the lead roles, but the studio put it in turnaround when a budget couldn’t be settled. Meyers then decided to pre-package before going out to other studios and was able to get negotiations for both stars started before last year’s American Film Market.

The CAA and LBI Entertainment-repped Witherspoon just wrapped the Fox Searchlight pic “Wild.”

Reese Witherspoon in Talks to Star in Nancy Meyers’ ‘The Intern’

Reese Witherspoon is in discussions to star in the Nancy Meyers-helmed The Intern. She’s serious enough that she is reportedly turning up at the American Film Market today (November 7th), where Lotus Entertainment is shopping the project to foreign buyers.

Robert De Niro is also circling.

Scott Rudin is producing the independently financed film, which was originally set up at Paramount (the studio is no longer involved). Worldview Entertainment has come aboard to finance the comedy.

Tina Fey was initially attached to star when the project was packaged by WME (Fey is repped by WME, which formerly handled Meyers). CAA, which reps Witherspoon, Meyers and De Niro, is now putting together the deal, which a source says is at a delicate stage.

Meyers wrote the screenplay, which centers on the owner of a successful fashion website (Witherspoon) who bonds with the elderly intern her company has hired (De Niro).

The studio has picked up Happily Ever After, a pitch from Nahnatchka Khan, the creator of Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23, that has Reese Witherspoon attached to star.

Witherspoon is also on board to produce with her Pacific Standard partner Bruna Papandrea. John Jacobs of Smart Entertainment is also producing.

The idea is to catch up with a prince and princess about 10 years after they have ridden off into the sunset for their “happily ever after.” The couple discovers that even in fairy-tale land, you have to work to keep your relationship and your life together.

The studio’s Kristin Burr and Erin Westerman will oversee the project.

The Happily deal was two years in the making

The idea for it was generated by at Smart Entertainment’s head of production, Zac Unterman. Jacobs and Unterman approached Khan with the idea; they knew the writer from working on American Dad for many years. The three developed together into a great pitch, which they then took to Witherspoon. After some more honing, they then took it to Burr and Westerman who sparked to it and set the project up.

Unterman will act as an exec producer.

Happily brings Witherspoon back into the fold of the studio that made her 2002 hit romantic comedy, Sweet Home Alabama. The actress is in pre-production on Wild, Fox Searchlight’s adaptation of the Cheryl Strayed memoir. (Witherspoon is starring and producing via Pacific Standard the Jean-Marc Vallee drama.)

Khan worked on American Dad! as a writer and executive story editor before going on to create Apartment 23, the ABC comedy that starred Krysten Ritter. She is also writing and executive producing an animated untitled Russell Brand project for FOX.

Smart was a producer on Beverly Hills Chihuahua for Disney and is involved with the sequel to Ted, Seth McFarlane’s hit comedy, and Blumhouse’s new thriller, The Boy Next Door, starring Jennifer Lopez.

Witherspoon is repped by CAA, LBI Entertainment and Hansen Jacobson. Khan is repped by WME.

Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Chastain among the front-runners to play Hillary Clinton in Rodham

Scarlett Johansson and Reese Witherspoon are among actresses being considered to portray the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Cannes: Weinstein Co. Picks Up Reeves-Witherspoon Space Romance ‘Passengers’

The Weinstein Company has acquired the U.S. rights to sci-fi romance movie, Passengers, starring Keanu Reeves and Reese Witherspoon.

The company has committed to a multi-million dollar guarantee and will spend a minimum $25 million on marketing the release. Wayfare Entertainment is financing and producing the film.

Developed by Reeves and Stephen Hamel at their Company Films, the script was written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus). The film will be the feature directing debut of Irish TV director Brian Kirk (Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire).

Reeves plays a character aboard a spaceship destined for a faraway colony whose sleep chamber malfunctions and awakens him 90 years before the ship is due to arrive.
