Meg Ryan will direct 'Ithaca'.

The 52-year-old actress is excited to make her directorial debut with the an adaptation of William Saroyan 1943 novel 'The Human Comedy'.

Ryan has been quoted saying: "'Ithaca' is a deceptively simple story, by turns stark and lyrical. It's sometimes shockingly unsentimental and yet, by some little miracle, never cynical. I am delighted to no end to bring a tale of such vibrancy and heart to the screen."

The blonde beauty will also star in the forthcoming film alongside Sam Shepard, Melanie Griffith, and her 21-year-old son Jack Quaid - who she had with actor Dennis Quaid.

Ryan will team up with pal and fellow star Tom Hanks - who she previously worked with on 1993's 'Sleepless In Seattle' and 1998's 'You've Got Mail' - who is executive producer with his production company Playtone partner Gary Goetzman.

'The Human Comedy' is about a telegram delivery boy in America during World War II who sends a range of messages to a number of people and witnesses the impact these have.
