MEG RYAN PLAYS LEADING 'ROLE' FOR MOUSE HOUSE
America’s former sweetheart, Meg Ryan has signed to star in "The Role of a Lifetime," the long-gestating romantic comedy about a Hollywood actor and a British director whose paths cross on Broadway.
Originally set up at Sony a decade ago, "Role" is in the process of moving over to Disney. The male lead has not yet been cast.

The project, based on an original script by Allison Burnett, has been through several incarnations over the years.

In the current version, a Hepburn/Tracy-like chemistry develops when a British theater director comes to Broadway with a Shakespearean production and investors insist that he cast a movie star in the leading role.

The fortysomething Ryan is in desperate need of a big hit. Her recent credits include "Against the Ropes," "In the Cut" and "Kate & Leopold," none of which made much of a dent at the box office.
