Meg Ryan plans to direct a film
London: Hollywood actress Meg Ryan, known as America`s sweetheart for her roles in romantic films like ``Sleepless in Seattle`` and ``When Harry Met Sally``, is planning to take up direction.
The 48-year-old star is in Cannes to raise money for her debut directorial venture, which she plans to begin shooting later this year, the Daily Mail reported.
Ryan has been seen in very few films in the past few years and the actress believes that she now has a better chance of making a living working as a director. "We`re about to begin casting but the film`s title is under wraps until we get the full financing," she said.
Ryan attended a party thrown by Vanity Fair magazine in association with Gucci with her producer friend Lawrence Bender.
