Ron Howard Might Direct From His Daughter's Screenplay

Ron Howard Might Direct From His Daughter's Screenplay

Bryce Dallas Howard wrote a movie and guess who might direct it? That's right, just in time for Father's Day, there's talk of a sweet little father-daughter project, reteaming Bryce Dallas Howard (actress-turned-screenwriter) and her father, director Ron Howard. The dramatic movie is titled The Originals and is described as "an ensemble film about a group of twentysomethings who reconvene for a weekend in New York after learning that the teacher who shaped their childhoods has fallen into a mysterious coma."

Bryce Dallas Howard has been collaborating with her writing partner Dane Charbeneau on the project for three years, after she had the idea of "writing something that tackled the quarter-life crisis issues her contemporaries were dealing with." Coming off the release of his Da Vinci Code sequel, Angels and Demons, Bryce's director dad has yet to officially sign on for his daughter's project, but does see it as "a potential antidote to the huge productions for which he is known."

How cute is this? I like this family and I think it's cool that the father-daughter duo can team up creatively.
