No, he’s not working at Vice like the rest of the neighborhood. He’s starring as a widower turned fashion-website lackey in The Intern, which shoots in Williamsburg today and tomorrow. (Apparently one movie about old dudes doing internships wasn’t enough.)
According to a flyer, filming will occur from around 10 a.m. to 2 a.m., and the shoot will eat up parking spaces from North 8th to North 13th Street, between Bedford and Wythe Avenue, plus Nassau Ave near Guernsey Street.
The comedy, written and directed by Nancy Meyers (The Parent Trap, It’s Complicated, etc.) had been shooting in brownstone Brooklyn, where we’re assuming the De Niro character resides. We’re guessing the Anne Hathaway character, a fashion editor who takes on the widower as an intern, works in Williamsburg and sends De Niro to fetch some coffee at El Beit? Or maybe she has him pick up some high-waisters at the new Courtshop store? Who knows.
Either way, if you live in Williamsburg, you might want to straighten up in case Bobby drops in.
