We already knew that Tom Hanks was set to work as a producer on Meg Ryan’s debut directorial effort Ithaca, but it looks like he’ll be briefly starring in the film too according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The place is Ithaca, in California’s San Joaquin Valley. The time is World War II. The family is the Macauley’s—a mother, sister, and three brothers whose struggles and dreams reflect those of America’s second-generation immigrants…In particular, fourteen-year-old Homer, determined to become one of the fastest telegraph messengers in the West, finds himself caught between reality and illusion as delivering his messages of wartime death, love, and money brings him face-to-face with human emotion at its most naked and raw.
According to the report, Hanks will play the father of the family »
