Ron Howard to Direct Israeli 'All I've Got' for J.J. Abrams & Bad Robot
Right now the director is finishing up his racing drama Rush, but sometime down the road, Ron Howard is going to do some work for J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot banner and Paramount Pictures. Right now the production company and studio that is bringing us Star Trek Into Darkness this summer is developing a theatrical feature adaptation of the Israeli TV movie Kol Ma She'Yesh Li which translates All I’ve Got. The film is described as a fantasy thriller with a bit of romance which sees a husband and wife get in a fatal car accident, and the man dies. Fifty years later when the woman dies, she has a pivotal choice to make.
Following the death of her husband, the woman went on to have a fulfilling life with a new husband and three children. In the afterlife, she must choose between forgetting that new life in the wake of her husband's death and live eternally as a young woman with her first husband, or remain as she is and wait for her second husband to pass away and join her in the afterlife. Vulture describes the story as having flares of both The Notebook and the Albert Brooks film Defending Your Life. It sounds like an interesting romance with a sort of sci-fi angle, almost like The Lake House or Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. We're intrigued, especially with Bad Robot involved and Howard directing.
Damn. Ron Howard must be hurting for cool projects.

I'm all " ??? " and " ??? ". Netflix it in 1-2 year-only since it's Howard, otherwise it would have been a sure pass.

Interesting story. Just keep Ron away from comedies. This is closer to his thing.
