UPDATED 07/27 check our Twitter and our Facebook page for more pictures and sightings from the set!

Film crews have descended on downtown Petersburg for the making of “Ithaca,” bringing actress Meg Ryan with them. Filming began Tuesday for the 1940s period piece – Ryan’s directorial debut – and will continue into mid-August.

On Wednesday, the area between South Side Depot and the Peter Jones Trading Station hummed with activity. Brian Little, director of cultural affairs for the City of Petersburg, said other filming locations include Sycamore Street in Old Towne, as well as inside and outside of At The Globe, an antiques store, and Centre Hill Mansion.

Little said city residents could run into parking issues. Currently, parking is not allowed in the Farmers Market lot and there will be no parking Aug. 5-9 in areas surrounding Centre Hill Mansion.

Ryan had Petersburg in her sites for months as a potential filming location. The actress was spotted in the city as early as April scoping out locations for the project, and continues to be seen in the area. A June 20 announcement from Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s office confirmed that Petersburg had been chosen. Other projects filmed in the city in recent years include “Lincoln,” “Killing Lincoln,” Killing Kennedy” and “The Abolitionists.” “Ithaca” will also film in the Richmond area.

The movie, scheduled for a 2015 release, is based on the 1943 novel “The Human Comedy,” by Pulitzer Prize-winning author William Saroyan. (…)

Producer and writer Erik Jendresen, who also worked on National Geographic’s “Killing Lincoln,” said Petersburg was the perfect place to bring “Ithaca” to life. “It was a no-brainer to come back to Virginia,” he said, “Petersburg is perfect; it has the quality of a town from days gone by.” SOURCE
