Grapefruit Moon

Mary Stuart Masterson (Fried Green Tomatoes) is set to direct Grapefruit Moon, a film based on her own screenplay that she describes as a romantic comedy based on her own version of graduate school. She will also play a small role in the film. The project, which commences filming this July in Austin, Texas, boasts Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather) as executive producer. With this project, Masterson takes her career into her own hands: "I'm looking for a good part. Everyone thought I was a tomboy. I'm thirty-one and I still get offered all these kid roles."
