Courier-Journal features a new interview with Ron and Bryce, in which she, amongst other things, confirms that she is indeed joining Jurassic Park next year:
[...] And he’s partnered with his daughter Bryce Dallas Howard to launch Canon’s Project Imaginat10n short-film project, inspired by photos submitted online. Howard is a mentor, and his daughter went through the program herself.
“I’m someone who is perpetually in school,” Bryce says. “I’m now enrolled at UCLA in adult continuing classes. I love school. Dad always says if he wasn’t a director, he’d be a basketball coach or a history teacher. He has a natural gift for teaching. He says exactly the right thing at exactly the right moment.”
Bryce Howard lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Seth Gabel, and kids Theo, 6, and Beatrice, almost 2. She’s very close to her folks. “I’m so lucky to have him as my dad,” she says. “I love being a student, and he has this incredible gift.”
But, her father retorts, “she doesn’t take my advice all that often.”
The two have a sweet rapport together. Bryce Howard says she was never allowed to act out as a kid, and it’s something she sticks to as an adult. Being the daughter of a very famous and very successful director, she says, has been a blessing.
“I feel so lucky. It’s only been an amazing thing for me. For a lot of individuals, it’s a mixed bag because they can be from a very public family and there’s been public trials and tribulations. There’s been none of that from my family,” she says. “I don’t want to screw that up. I’ve never had a sip of alcohol in my life. I don’t want to do or say anything that’s wrong. My parents never put pressure on us, and yet they were very good parents and set boundaries and stuck their guns and never took the easy route.” [...]
And his daughter is also going back in a very big way. “They’re relaunching the Jurassic Park franchise, so I’ll be chasing dinosaurs. That’s going to happen next year,” she says.
Would they ever work together?
“It would be fun, but I’m cautious. When we do it, I want to find something that will stand up against what I suspect will be an extra measure of scrutiny,” says Ron Howard. “Maybe she’ll cast me in a movie.” (Source)
As well as playing host during the festival, Bryce Dallas Howard looked quite the proud daughter when she attended the launch of Canon’s Project Imaginat10n on Thursday.
The event, founded by her famous father, Ron, saw the actress wow in a floor-length dress as she joined him on the red carpet in New York.
Both the two-time Oscar winner and his Golden Globe-nominated daughter opted for basic black for the event. (…)
Bryce and the 59-year-old, who co-founded the festival with Canon, debuted 10 short films during the evening, which will also be screened to the public. (Source)
She looked beautiful! You can find some pictures (including HQs) from the event here in our gallery!
There have been rumours for quite some time now, and I have to say that I myself would be absolutely thrilled if they turned out to be true since I am a huge fan of the Jurassic Park films (also, I miss Bryce on the big screen!). But see for yourself:
Colin Trevorrow (“Safety Not Guaranteed”) is directing the movie, which hits theaters on June 12, 2015
Bryce Dallas Howard is in early negotiations to star in Universal’s “Jurassic World,” an individual familiar with the 3D project has told TheWrap.
Howard has long been rumored for one of the lead roles, though she only recently received an offer.
Colin Trevorrow (“Safety Not Guaranteed”) is directing the fourth film in the franchise, which he wrote with frequent collaborator Derek Connolly. (…)
After taking time off to start a family, Howard is ready to field movie offers again. She had a stellar 2011 in which she starred in “The Help” and “50/50.” Her past credits include “Spider-Man 3,” “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” and “Lady in the Water.”(Source)
Bryce Dallas Howard will receive the 2013 Spotlight Award at the 5th Annual Lady Filmmakers Film Festival.
The honour comes in recognition of Howard’s “outstanding achievements on and off camera” and will be presented during the festival, which runs from September 28-29 in Beverly Hills.
Lady Filmmakers will co-present and co-sponsor the award with the Casting Society Of America.
The festival promotes women in the industry from all ethnic, religious, and sexually oriented communities and brings awareness to social issues and challenges women face worldwide. (Source)
Awesome news, and well-deserved! Congratulations, Bryce!!!
Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, two-time Academy Award winner Ron Howard, and Bryce Dallas Howard, one of Hollywood’s most versatile actresses and director of the 2011 short film “when you find me,” have announced the five winning consumer directors of the “Project Imaginat10n” film contest, which gave filmmakers of all skill levels an opportunity to showcase their creativity and storytelling abilities. Five celebrity directors also took part in the same creative exercise: Eva Longoria (film and TV actress), Jamie Foxx (Academy Award winner), Biz Stone (co-founder of Twitter), Georgina Chapman (designer and co-founder of Marchesa) and James Murphy (founder of LCD SOUNDSYSTEM).
The challenge was to create a short film inspired by ten crowdsourced photos in ten storytelling themes: Character, Mood, Goal, Backstory, Setting, Obstacle, Relationship, The Unknown, Time and Discovery. The Discovery photo, “Discovering limits,” was selected by Ron Howard and served as the thematic tie in each film. From hundreds of film submissions, twenty finalists were selected by a panel of judges. From there, Ron Howard and Bryce Dallas Howard selected five winners to be part of “A Ron Howard Presentation.”
Each film was judged based on imaginativeness, originality, technical quality, overall impression and the extent to which the film was inspired by ten of the winning Project Imaginat10n photos. The five Grand Prize winners include:
Arrius Sorbonne, 24 years old of Salt Lake City, UT with his submission, “Dominus” Jared Nelson, 26 years old of Rancho Cucamonga, CA with his submission, “Chucked” Julian Higgins, 27 years old of Los Angeles, CA with his submission, “Here and Now” Kalman Apple, 53 years old of Los Angeles, CA with his submission, “A Day in the Country” Ronnie Allman, 26 years old of San Francisco, CA with his submission, “Filter”
Congratulations to the lucky winners!
Bryce attended yesterday’s Los Angeles premiere of Thanks For Sharing where she debuted a cute new bob hairstyle and wore a green peacock patterned mini dress with black tights and velvet heels. I love her new look! Click here for some pictures, more will be added as I find them.
On Saturday, Sept 14th, Raleigh Studios celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Hollywood Networking Breakfast (HNB) in the Charlie Chaplin Theatre at Raleigh Studios with special guest, Ms. Bryce Dallas Howard. [..]
An audience that included individuals with expertise in the areas of acting, directing, casting, writing, editing, film finance and more, were on hand to avail themselves to not only the wisdom of the noted director and actress of such films as Spider-Man 3, Terminator Salvation and the critically acclaimed The Twilight Saga and The Help – The later she confessed, “Casting directors told my agent that I was too innocent and sweet looking to play the role of Hilly Holbrook.” HNB Founder, Sandra Lord, said, “We were lucky and honored to have Bryce as our special guest speaker for the 20th anniversary. The audience was ecstatic and so very grateful for her frank honesty and advice. She will be a hard act to follow at next months meeting.” (Read more…)
