ROBERT DE NIRO & REESE WITHERSPOON IN 'THE INTERN' FASHION COMEDY! MARVEL & NETFLIX TO MAKE SHOWS ON 'DAREDEVIL', 'JESSICA LUCAS', 'IRON FIST', 'LUKE CAGE'! CW & DC TO MAKE 'HOURMAN' SHOW! 'THE PAINTED GIRLS' 19TH CENTURY PARIS SHOW

THE INTERN FASHION COMEDY
GETS ROBERT DE NIRO AND REESE WITHERSPOON
Well, this sounds like a hilarious comedy: 'Variety' reports that Robert De Niro and Reese Witherspoon have signed on to star in THE INTERN which is both written and will be directed by Nancy Meyers (THE HOLIDAY, WHAT WOMEN WANT). The story will revolve around the owner (Reese Witherspoon) of a fashion website, who starts a community outreach program seeking "senior" interns. While she thinks that high school and college seniors will apply, she discovers that her intern is a 70-year-old man (Robert De Niro) who proves to be quite an asset to her company and becomes a mentor to his mentor since it turns out that he was a successful businessman before he retired.

TELEVISION UPDATES
NETFLIX TO MAKE DAREDEVIL, JESSICA JONES, LUKE CAGE, IRON FIST SHOWS
Moving on to television news, Marvel and Netflix have made a deal in which four of Marvel's popular superhero characters will get their own television shows with the first one to air in 2015. The individual shows would each focus on DAREDEVIL,  on JESSICA JONES, on IRON FIST and on LUKE CAGE, which would all have up to 13 episodes and will air over the years, and will then end with a special mini series titled MARVEL'S THE DEFENDERS which would see all of them in a team of self sacrificing superheroes who protect the world.
THE PAINTED GIRLS 1880'S PARIS SHOW
Over at CW, they are planning a 1880's Paris set show based on THE PAINTED GIRLS novel by Cathy Marie Buchanan. Similarly to CW's new show REIGN, this one will also be set in France, but in the 19th century against the backdrop of the turbulent and exciting world of “La Belle Epoque” – decadence, poverty, sex, drugs and a serial killer running rampant throughout the city. It revolves around three sisters studying at a top ballet academy, one of whom becomes the muse for Edgar Degas and his famed paintings of ballerinas.
DC'S 'HOURMAN' SHOW AT CW
But CW will also add some other superheroes to their slate beside popular ARROW, because together with Marvel's rival DC they plan to make a show out of HOURMAN comic  centring on a brilliant yet troubled pharmaceutical analyst who discovers that the visions that have plagued him since childhood are actually glimpses of tragic events occurring one hour in the future. Determined to win back his ex-wife and son, he heroically prevents these tragedies from unfolding, finding both purpose and redemption along the way.

  2. It's somewhat of a shame to see Vito Corleone, Al Capone, the Deer Hunter, and Jake LaMotta playing fluff parts nowadays. But, I like Deniro so I want to see his movie with Reese.
