(Relaxnews) – The Oscar-winning actress looks likely to give De Niro a going over in this upcoming work-place comedy.

Anne Hathaway (“Rachel Getting Married,” “Les Miserables”) is in discussion to play the boss of an online fashion business, according to The Hollywood Reporter, though her daily life will be disturbed by the arrival of Robert De Niro, her firm’s new septuagenarian trainee.

Directed by Nancy Myers, whose romantic comedies include “What Women Want,” “Something’s Gotta Give,” “The Holiday” and “It’s Complicated” — as well as writing and production credits on “Father of the Bride” and its sequel — “The Intern” will poke fun at the generation gap between our two protagonists, as their complementary professional and personal qualities are brought to light.
