Clint Eastwood Looking to Direct Angelina

Angelina Jolie has her hands full with adoptions these days, but Clint Eastwood's arms are noticeably empty of Oscar statuettes. Perhaps that's one reason the nominated Letters from Iwo Jima director is eyeing The Changeling for his next project. Variety is reporting that Eastwood could soon be working with Jolie on the highly anticipated new film from Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment. According to the article:

Jolie would play a woman whose son is abducted but retrieved; she suspects, however, that the returned child is not her kid. The woman must then confront corruption in the LAPD. Story is based on true events in 1920s Los Angeles.

U and Imagine have been high on the project since acquiring it last summer and placing it on a shortlist of films that Imagine partner (Ron) Howard intended to direct next.

Apparently, Howard was so busy that he wouldn't have been able to get to The Changeling for another two years, so the studios approached Eastwood with the script. In my opinion, Howard's packed schedule is a blessing, so

I'm hot and cold on Eastwood as a director: Flags of Our Fathers looked pretty schlocky, but it's hard not to respect Million Dollar Baby. While Eastwood can be a bit heavy-handed, his style is far subtler than Howard's, and I think the film could work well in his hands. Plus, it will be exciting to see Jolie tackle what sounds to be a really challenging role again.

Hey Mrs. Jacki: It's actually Ron Howard, the director. It says it in the excerpted news article, but it's easy to miss.

Looks like it would be a pretty good movie. But who is Howard? I re-read the whole thing, and I don't know who they meant by Howard? Hmmmmmm but it does look good!
