From Sleepless In Seattle, to You’Ve Got Mail and Joe Versus The Volcano, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan have made a perfect movie duo for many years but it has, of course, been a while since they’ve hit the big screen together.
This one is a little different though as Ithaca will be Meg Ryan’s directorial debut with Hanks production company Playtone backing her. That’s not to say there won’t be a cameo for Hanks though and although this isn’t something he always does, it seems that some form of reunion is definitely on and for the fourth time.
The film is based on the 1943 novel by William Saroyan called The Human Comedy. It’s a World War II saga that’s sold as a ‘coming of age’ drama about life on the front line, something that Hanks definitely has connects to and would slot into comfortably. »
