Ron Howard is said to be some way into pre-production work with a true crime thriller, which is looking likely to be his next feature.
Straight off the back of this year’s Thirteen Lives, Ron Howard is poised to dive straight into his next project, a true crime thriller titled Origin Of The Species. Whilst it doesn’t seem to be a certainty just yet, Deadline is reporting that the filmmaker has been meeting actors and scouting location, suggesting that the project will be Howard’s next production to go before the cameras.
We don’t have much of a synopsis to go on, but we we do know sounds rather interesting. The story ‘follows an unlikely group of people who independently turn their backs on society. Fuelled by a deep desire for change, they leave everything behind and stake their futures on the most unlikely of places – the harsh landscape of The Galapagos.’
We do know that the project has been written by Noah Pink, who is also responsible for penning the script for Tetris, the film adaptation of the classic video game which is currently in production. Unlike Howard, who will be going from one film inspired by real events directly to another, that’s quite a tonal leap for Pink and we’re eager to see how both of these projects turn out. We’ll bring you more news on Origin Of The Species as we hear it.
