Meg Ryan shared on social media that she and David Duchovny will star in the new romantic comedy ‘What Happens Later’.
What Happens Later is based on the Steven Dietz play ‘Shooting Star.’ Dietz wrote the screenplay, along with Ryan and Kirk Lynn. Ryan, 60, will also direct the film, which will begin production in Bentonville, Ark., later this year. The film is planning a 2023 theatrical release.
What Happens Later follows Willa (Ryan) and Bill (Duchovny), two ex-lovers who reunite for the first time since their split decades prior when they both are snowed in at an airport overnight. ” An official synopsis reads: “All each of them wants is to get home but over the course of the night they find themselves at first reluctantly drawn together yet compelled to revisit their past, along with what could have been and what might well be again. But when the versions of their shared history don’t quite add up, where do they go from there?”
