Apr 10 • by admin • Comments Offevents, general, movies

*Updated * Scouting movie locations in Virginia and Ohio

Apr 8 • by admin • Comments Offgeneral, Ithaca, movies

Local newssources are reporting Meg was in and around the Richmond, Virginia, area on Monday and Tuesday with a group of people to look at possible filming locations for Meg’s upcoming directorial debut ‘Ithaca’. Updated 04/10: several sightings of her looking at locations in and around Cincinnati, Ohio, today and yesterday!

Meg Ryan was in town at least since Monday and visited Petersburg with a film crew, according to Demolition Coffee owner Kris Haase. Haase said that he was one of the few people who spoke with Ryan, who didn’t want a lot of people snapping her photo (noted), and she told him that she was in the area scouting film locations. She kindly gave Haase an autograph.

No official word on what movie but a little research yielded some likely information. Ryan will be in the director’s chair for the upcoming film “Ithaca,”which is slated for a 2015 release and is based on “The Human Comedy,” a book written by Pulitizer Prize winning writer William Saroyan. “It is a coming-of-age story about the exuberance of youth, the sweetness of life, the sting of death and the modesty and sheer goodness that lives in each and every one of us,” according to the IMDB synopsis.

If Virginia is chosen, and IF this is the movie, we can expect to graciously host such stars as Melanie Griffith, Sam Shepard, Lois Robbins, and Jack Quaid. Perhaps Tom Hanks, who is listed on IMDB as the executive producer for the film, would like to stop by for a visit of Virginia (…).

Multiple people report seeing her in Carytown today, outside Can Can Brasserie. A waiter at the restaurant, which has hosted many a celebrity with all the films being made here of late, could not confirm that she went inside. “I should say that I saw her when I was coming out of Can Can and she was standing at the door,” Amy Ernst wrote on Facebook. “I don’t know if they all went in!” (…)

We reached out to the Virginia Film Office to confirm any potential partnerships and will post more information as it is made available. SOURCE

Throwback Thursday: Philip Seymour Hoffman

Feb 6 • by admin • Comments Off#tbt, general, movies

It’s time for another throwback thursday #TBT collage. On Sunday 46-year old supertalented actor Philip Seymour Hoffman died in NYC, way too young, way too soon. A heartbreaking story, where after decades of being sober, the actor’s previous heroin addiction sadly caught up with him again, this time with disastrous consequences.

In 1994 a then very young Seymour Hoffman played the recovering ex-alcoholic ‘Gary’ in ‘When A Man Loves A Woman’ opposite Meg Ryan. This collage is made from screencaps of his scenes and the text is from R.E.M.’s song ‘Everybody Hurts’ from the same movie.


News about The Human Comedy movie adaptation

Jan 30 • by admin • Comments Offjack & daisy, movies

Several newssources including Variety have news about Meg directing and acting in a movie adaption of the book The Human Comedy, that Meg has been working on for a while. Nice to see she is looking to work with her 21 year old talented son Jack.

In the lead-up to the European Film Market at the Berlin Film Festival, international sales and finance company The Exchange has acquired worldwide sales rights to Meg Ryan’s directorial debut “Ithaca,” which she also stars in alongside Sam Shepard, Melanie Griffith and Jack Quaid. Exchange will begin selling rights to buyers in Berlin.

‘Ithaca’ is a deceptively simple story, by turns stark and lyrical,” Ryan said. “It’s sometimes shockingly unsentimental and yet, by some little miracle, never cynical.” Set in a small town in California’s San Joaquin Valley in 1942, “Ithaca” follows a teenage boy, who aspires to be the fastest bicycle messenger ever. His life is changed as he delivers messages to the town’s residents during WWII.

Erik Jendresen (“Band of Brothers”) wrote the screenplay, based on William Saroyan’s novel, “The Human Comedy.” “‘Ithaca’ is a story all can relate to: a quintessential coming-of-age story,” says Exchange CEO Brian O’Shea. “The Exchange is excited to watch Saroyan’s words burst with the kind of joy and energy certain to light up the big screen.”
