Los Angeles - Reese Witherspoon may star in Nancy Meyers' The Intern.

The Oscar-winning actress and fellow award winner Robert De Niro are circling roles in the new movie from the It's Complicated director.

The film follows a successful business owner of a fashion website (Witherspoon) who develops a bond with an elderly intern (De Niro) hired by her company, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Tina Fey was initially in talks for the lead role.

Meyers is best known for scripting and directing movies such as The Parent Trap with Lindsay Lohan, The Holiday with Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet, and most recently, the Meryl Streep-starring It's Complicated.

Witherspoon recently starred alongside Matthew McConaughey in Mud and is currently filming Wild, which is based on Cheryl Strayed's best-selling novel about a 26-year-old woman who finds herself at a crossroads following the death of her mother and end of her marriage.

She has also signed on for Disney's fairytale spoof Happily Ever After, and female buddy comedy Don't Mess with Texas, which will co-star Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara.

De Niro will next be seen starring alongside Michelle Pfeiffer in The Family.
