The project, which is scheduled to begin lensing this summer, stars Bobby Cannavale as Richie Finestra, the founder and president of a top-tier record label who is dealing with a crisis of character. Olivia Wilde plays his former actress-model wife and Juno Temple plays a manipulative, ambitious assistant at the record label.

Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks Reunite -- as Director and Producer

31 January 2014 7:25 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Few actresses are the target of as many comeback rumors as Meg Ryan. After 2003's In the Cut, the Jane Campion thriller she had hoped would be her reinvention, Ryan disappeared into quickly forgotten indies and the occasional TV guest spot. She finally reappeared last year, announcing she'd headline an NBC comedy in a role that winks at the last ten years of her resume -- as a middle-aged woman in a creative field who was once at the top of her game, but now must rebuild her career after a long absence.  Ryan's proving she's doing her comeback her own way. She will make her directorial debut with Ithaca, a film adaptation of William Saroyan's coming-of-age novel The Human Comedy, and reunite with her former rom-com dream-team partner Tom Hanks, who will produce. The film will see some other familiar faces in stars Sam Shepard and Melanie Griffith, »

Tom Hanks & Meg Ryan Are Reuniting for 'Ithaca'

30 January 2014 8:15 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

America's former favorite cinematic sweethearts, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, are reuniting for a new movie -- though unfortunately for fans of their crackling chemistry, it won't be onscreen.

Instead, Ryan will direct and Hanks will executive produce a World War II drama called "Ithaca." It will be Ryan's feature directorial debut, and the first time the pair has worked together since 1998's "You've Got Mail."

"Ithaca," based on a 1943 William Saroyan novel, "The Human Comedy," tells the story of a teenaged telegram delivery boy who witnesses the upheaval of WWII through those he ferries messages to in his small hometown. Ryan will also star in the film, alongside Melanie Griffith, Sam Shepard, and Ryan's son, Jack Quaid ("The Hunger Games").

"'Ithaca' is a deceptively simple story, by turns stark and lyrical," Ryan said of the film. "It's sometimes shockingly unsentimental and yet, by some little miracle, never cynical. I »

Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks: Together Again!

30 January 2014 6:30 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks are working together again, though, sadly, not acting together. Hanks will be producing Ryan's directorial debut, Ithaca. Beyond directing, Ryan will star alongside Sam ShepardMelanie Griffith and Jack Quaid. Adapted from William Saroyan's popular 1943 novel The Human Comedy, the movie is a coming-of-age story set in WWII-era America, focusing on a teenage boy who, after his brother goes to war, is tasked with looking after his widowed mother, older sister, and younger brother. Oooh, but then, what if he grows up (now played by Hanks, making a cameo) to open a bookstore — like a bookstore so big it pushes out a little bookstore — and in doing so he meets the owner of said little bookstore (Ryan) and they fall in love on the Upper West Side of Manhattan (Riverside Park)? That would be nice. »

Hunger Games' Jack Quaid Goes to Ithaca

29 January 2014 12:22 PM, PST | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Jack Quaid, whom you know as Marvel in The Hunger Games, will be one of the stars in Ithaca. Based on the book "The Human Comedy," the story follows 14-year old Homer who is determined to be the fastest bicycle telegraph messenger in 1942. With his brother going off to fight in World War II, the teen is the only "man of the house" (this is 1942, it was a different time) and feels he has to take care of his widowed mother, his older sister and his 4-year old brother. Since Jack is 21, my best guess is that he will play the older brother headed off to war rather than the lead role. Other actors already cast are Sam Shepard, Melanie Griffith and Meg Ryan. Meg Ryan is Jack Quaid's mom and is also directing this film. Tom Hanks' company, Playtone, will make the movie. (Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan »
