Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan will reunite on Ithaca.

Best known for starring together in romantic comedies Sleepless In Seattle and You've Got Mail, the pair will now be working together behind the camera, reports The Playlist.

Hanks will produce Ryan's directorial debut, in which she will also star.

The film centres around 14-year-old Homer Macauley, who in 1942 is deemed the best and fastest bicycle telegraph messenger in history.

When his older brother goes to war, Homer is left to look after his widowed mother, his older sister and his 4-year-old brother, and to bring hope to their community.

Sam Shepard, Melanie Griffith and Jack Quaid will also feature in the movie.

Ithaca will enter production in the summer. »
