Howard to direct a fantasy film?

18 January 2013

Ron Howard is "attached" to direct the English-language version of All I've Got.

The Oscar-winning filmmaker is in talks to take control of the Hollywood adaptation of the 2003 Israeli TV film Kol Ma She'Yesh (translated to All I've Got), reported Vulture.

Described as a fantasy drama, the film - originally written by Margalit Keren - has been in the works at JJ Abrams' Bad Robot for a few years.

It follows the story of a couple who finally reunite in the afterlife, 50 years after the woman's boyfriend is killed in a car accident.

The movie would mark Ron's first fantasy film since 2000's How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

The filmmaker, who has directed Frost/Nixon, Apollo 13 and A Beautiful Mind, is busy on post-production with his upcoming Formula 1 racing drama Rush, starring Chris Hemsworth and Olivia Wilde.
