Katie Holmes In 'Mania Days': On-Set Photos Show Actress Smiling Alongside Co-Star Luke Kirby

Posted: Updated:

Katie Holmes has maintained a relatively low-key persona in the aftermath of her divorce from Tom Cruise last summer, but now she's getting back to business with her first movies since 2011's "Jack and Jill" and the ReelzChannel miniseries "The Kennedys." Photos from the set of one of those movies -- the upcoming "Mania Days" -- have surfaced, featuring Holmes dashing through a fountain with co-star Luke Kirby while clad in a wet T-shirt.

"Mania Days" depicts two manic depressives who meet in a psychiatric ward and embark on a romance. The movie is written and directed by Paul Dalio, who made his feature-film debut with the 2012 Bulgarian movie "Faith, Love and Whiskey." Spike Lee serves as a producer.

The movie, currently being filmed in New York, also stars TV vets Christine Lahti ("Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Chicago Hope") and Bruce Altman ("Law & Order").

Naturally, Holmes' close quarters with Kirby have sparked speculation as to whether the duo is dating. Kirby has seen a slow but assured rise to fame following his supporting roles in critical duds like "Halloween: Resurrection" and the ABC Family movie "Labor Pains," starring Lindsay Lohan. He garnered a more prominent spot in the well-received 2011 dramedy "Take This Waltz," co-starring Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen.

Holmes also has "Responsible Adults," a romantic comedy co-starring Chace Crawford, in the works, as well as a yet-untitled retelling of Anton Chekov's famous play "The Seagull," which will also feature William Hurt and Allison Janney.
