Ron Howard, who helped produce “Cowboys & Aliens,” sees a future for his actress daughter Bryce Dallas Howard not unlike his own.
“She loves acting, and has a couple films coming out, ‘50/50’ and ‘The Help,’ and she doesn’t want to give that up — she’s definitely interested in being a hyphen,” says the two-time Oscar winner, who started as a child actor on “The Andy Griffith Show” and went on to direct celebrated films such as “Apollo 13” and “A Beautiful Mind.”
Father and daughter are now teaming up on a project with Canon to select photos from around the country that will inspire a short film to be directed by Bryce and produced by Ron. “Project Imagin8ion” has received 96,362 entries — narrowed down to 80 finalists (with 17 from New York) — and the 8 winners will be announced in early August on YouTube.
“It’s a chance for us to work together,” says Howard, 57, of his 30-year-old daughter, who is now pregnant with her second child. “The conversations we’ve been having quickly boil down to this elemental discussion of what makes a story compelling: What characters do you choose and why? And the oppositional characters are just as important as the heroes.” (Read more…)

Actress Bryce Dallas Howard’s writing partner has become her brother-in-law after she played matchmaker between him and her sister.
The Twilight star knew writer Dane Charbeneau was perfect for her 26-year-old sister Jocelyn when they began working together on new movie project The Originals – and she introduced them.
She says, “During the course of the process, I set him up with my sister so he’s my brother-in-law now!”
And the actress is so impressed with the film she has co-written with her new brother-in-law, she’s hoping to make it her feature film debut.
She adds, “If it does get made I will be directing it.” (Source)

DreamWorks Pictures’ THE HELP will now open in theaters on Wednesday, August 10th instead of the previously announced August 12. The audience will be treated to a moving story of hope and courage, laced throughout with large doses of humor.
Filmed on location in Mississippi, director Tate Taylor summed up his hopes for the film’s impact on the audience: “I hope it will make people stop and consider their past and start sharing their own personal stories about what someone meant to them. It’s honoring these people, past and present, because these characters are heard and seen in this movie and that serves as a touchstone for remembrance and tribute for the people watching the movie.” (Source)
