Ryan eyes Stone’s ‘Borders’

Costner back on board to co-star

Meg Ryan is in talks with Paramount’s Mandalay Pictures to topline “Beyond Borders.”

While discussions are preliminary — Ryan is understood to be meeting with “Borders” helmer Oliver Stone today — the prognosis, according to insiders, looks good.

The international relief worker-themed romance had been beset by several false starts, with one-time co-star Catherine Zeta-Jones dropping out due to her pregnancy, and Kevin Costner briefly considering other work.

But now “Borders” is set for a September start: Costner is back on board the Caspian Tredwell Owen-penned pic and, contrary to reports elsewhere, helmer Stone’s plans to remake “A Star Is Born” will not delay “Borders.” That Jon Peters/WB project could only go before cameras with Stone next summer, according to insiders, if it goes at all.

Meanwhile, Ryan has also received an offer from Par-based Cruise/Wagner Prods. to topline the legal thriller “Criminal Conversation,” which had been initially developed for Nicole Kidman.

“Wings of the Dove” helmer Iain Softley will helm “Conversation,” which Ryan could star in after lensing “Borders.”

Ryan is repped by ICM, Stone by CAA.
