For every 鈥90s kid, old school rom-coms hold a special nostalgic place in movie-lovers鈥 hearts, and no two actors epitomize the genre more than Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. From Sleepless in Seattle to You鈥檝e Got Mail, their on-screen chemistry was swoon-worthy. Now, they鈥檙e coming together once again, but in a story that鈥檚 much different from what you鈥檙e used to seeing from them.

You've Got Mail _ Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan

It鈥檚 been 18 years since You鈥檝e Got Mail, still a rom-com fave for many, and now Meg and Tom will be appearing together in a new movie, Ithaca. The catch though is they鈥檙e only going to be reunited for one scene. Whaa?! The film will focus on the son of Meg and Tom鈥檚 character during the Second World War. Tom鈥檚 character is, in fact, dead. Meg will be playing a supporting role as Tom鈥檚 widow. This really doesn鈥檛 sound rom-com-ish at all. Actually, it sounds like we should be bringing Kleenexes.

Despite the tragic premise, filming the movie was still a fun time for the long-time friends, especially the one time (10 hours) they got to work together. 鈥淎t the end of his time,鈥 Meg told Entertainment Weekly of Tom, 鈥渉e says to the crew, 鈥楢ll right, gather 鈥榬ound. Listen, I know we鈥檝e gotten to know each other very well over the last 10 hours together, but I just want to thank you for being here for my friend Meg.鈥 It was such an act of friendship. I love him so much.鈥 Too sweet!

Though it initially sounds as if Meg had a minor role in this film, she also directed Ithaca, which was adapted from William Saroyan鈥檚 novel The Human Comedy. Heading to theaters September 9, take a peek below at Tom and Meg together again.
