Meg Ryan will Star Next to David Duchovny in Rom-Com Take ‘What Happens Later’

Meg Ryan will direct and star alongside David Duchovny in “What Happens Later,” an “evolved and nostalgic” take on the romantic comedy.

The film is based on the play “Shooting Star” by American playwright Steven Dietz, who also co-wrote the screenplay with playwright and novelist Kirk Lynn, and Ryan. Bleecker Street has snapped up the U.S. rights and is planning a 2023 theatrical release. London-based sales agent HanWay Films has come on board to handle international sales and distribution and will kick off sales at this month’s Cannes Film Festival.

Production will begin later this year in Bentonville, Arkansas.

“What Happens Later” is produced by Independent Spirit Award winners Jonathan Duffy and Kelly Williams (“Sorry to Bother You,” “I Used to Go Here”) through their Ten Acre Films, Independent Spirit Award nominee Laura D. Smith (“I’ll See You In My Dreams”), and Kristin Mann (“The Quarry”). Kerri Elder and Blake Elder of Rockhill Studios are executive producers together with Bleecker Street’s Andrew Karpen and Kent Sanderson.
