Robert De Niro and Reese Witherspoon are set to share the screen in new film The Intern.

The Oscar-winners are both in talks to star in the comedy, reported Deadline.

The pair were apparently hand-picked for the roles by the film's writer and director Nancy Meyers.

Reese, 37, will play the founder of a top fashion website, who is taking part in her company's senior intern scheme.

De Niro, 70, will play the elderly widower assigned to her, who used to be a businessman.

Meyers previously said of the movie: "The character is much younger than me, but I was attracted to the pressures the character feels with her business, her husband and kids, and seeing all this from the point of view of a man who has been through it."
