Actress Amy Ryan has been chosen to be the wife of Tom Hanks in Steven Spielberg's untitled cold war thriller film that will be released in 2015. For some movie fans such an announcement might not eliicit a reaction but it is a very impressive achievement and illustrates the enhanced status of Amy Ryan in Hollywood.
Not everyone gets to act opposite Tom Hanks because the man's acting range is extensive and thus only the truly elite actors can match his dramatic range. Amy Ryan is probably one of the few actresses who possesses the talent to be able to find the different dimensions of the character that would enable her to connect with audiences and match the acting talent of Tom Hanks and this is probably the reason for her selection to this leading lady role.
The movie will be filmed in New York and Berlin starting in September so that it will be ready for its October 2015 release.
However, this is not the only movie project that Amy Ryan has on her schedule. She will be seen in the comedy "Birdman" in October 2014, a movie about a washed-up actor who once played an iconic superhero but now must overcome his ego and family troubles as he puts on a Broadway play to reclaim his past glory.
In addition she will be seen in the movie "Don Verdean" in 2014 and is also filming the animated action movie "Monster Trucks" and the horror film "Goosebumps".
Amy Ryan is an actress whose film schedule could not get much busier but this is also an indication of the respect accorded to her acting abilities. The most talented actresses get the most work and it is readily apparent that filmmakers view Amy Ryan as one of the most talented actresses in Hollywood.
