Ron Howard to Direct All I’ve Got For J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot
Ron Howard has made some interesting choices for his latest movies. His last project was the comedy The Dilemma, starring Kevin James and Vince Vaughn, and he’s now in post-production on a Formula One racing film called Rush that will most likely be followed up by a documentary with Jay-Z called Jay-Z: Made in America.
Vulture reports that Howard will also work on a remake of the 2003 Israeli TV movie Kol Ma She’Yesh Li, which translates to All I’ve Got, as a theatrical feature for J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot. It will be produced through Paramount Pictures.
The film focuses on a couple that gets into a tragic car accident. The man dies while the woman continues on with her life, eventually getting married and having three kids. When the woman dies 50 years later, she’s offered a choice: stay as she is and wait for her current husband to die or return to her younger age and get reacquainted with her earlier love.
The story is described as a fantasy-thriller. All I’ve Got is the latest Israeli project being translated for American audiences after Hatufim was turned into Showtime’s Homeland and Be’Tipul developed into HBO’s In Treatment.
