Ryan walks to ‘Woman’

Loncraine taking helm

NEW YORK — Meg Ryan has committed to star for director Richard Loncraine (“Richard III”) in “This Man This Woman,” a drama scripted by Frederic Raphael (“Eyes Wide Shut”).

The film will be distributed domestically by Sony-based Screen Gems Pictures, with Initial Entertainment Group covering most foreign territories.

“Woman” is inspired by biographical articles written by Lynn Darling for Esquire magazine, and has been shepherded since 1996 by producer Mike Lobell. Darling wrote about several tragedies that befell members of her family and they form the basis for a pro-marriage drama in which a couple endures two devastating incidents before rediscovering their love.

The project was originally set up at Universal, but Lobell moved it to the fledgling Screen Gems, where Ben Feingold and Clint Culpepper embraced it. Ryan, who has been looking for increasingly complicated material, had been interested in the film for some time, and the budget was raised for a January shoot through Screen Gems and IEG’s Graham King.

Ryan is repped by ICM.
