It's official: Ron Howard's little girl is all grown up.
Bryce Dallas Howard, the fiery beauty who first broke onto the scene in M. Night Shyamalan's 2004 thriller "The Village," is about to move to the other side of the camera.
The thirty-year-old actress just confirmed that she is gearing up to direct her first feature film, a coming-of-age flick titled "The Originals," Collider recounts.
The story, which Bryce describes as "a 'Breakfast Club' for my generation," is said to revolve around a group of twenty-year-olds who meet in New York upon learning that their former teacher lapsed into a mysterious coma.
Bryce is not only directing, but penning the script as well, along with the help from Dane Charbonneau, her writing partner.
So who does this actress/ writer want for her cast?
"So far I wrote a part for Zoe Saldana," she stated, "But there are so many good choices out there."
When "The Originals" first floated around Hollywood, it was rumored to have Ron on board to direct, which is clearly no longer the case.
But don't worry; her dad's still got her back—his production company, Imagine Entertainment, will distribute the film.
