Ron Howard and Chris Hemsworth

It sounds like Ron Howard is having a busy week. Not only is the filmmaker bringing Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book back to life and working with Bad Robot on remaking the Israeli film All I've Got, but now Vulture has word of yet another new project for the director. After working with Chris Hemsworth on the racing drama Rush, it sounds like Howard might head to Warner Bros. to reteam with the actor for the adaptation of In the Heart of the Sea, based on Nathaniel Philbrick's book of the same name. The story follows the real-life disaster of a ship being destroyed by a sperm whale in 1820, which inspired Moby Dick.

Hemsworth became attached to the project last summer, and since the script for the film is done with a star involved, this could very well be Howard's next project. However, Howard hasn't yet committed and talks are still ongoing. Production is expected to begin this fall, so likely we'll be hearing more soon. There's no telling how well Howard and Hemsworth do together until Rush comes to theaters this September, but if this reunion is a prospect, then it might mark a game changer for Hemsworth as a real dramatic star as opposed to an action man with a pretty face and decent comedic sensibilities. Stay tuned.

This sounds like an un-filmable project, but maybe Ang Lee can give him some advice.

That's what people say about a lot of films that end up into true masterpieces with the right people.
