Jodie Foster May Have Stroke for Ron Howard


Deadline reports that Ron Howard has come onboard to direct a feature adaptation of My Stroke of Insight, brain scientist Jill Bolte Taylor's memoir of recovery from a debilitating stroke at age 37. (You may know Bolte Taylor from her famous TED lecture recounting exactly how she experienced the stroke, which she broke down in academic detail.) Howard hopes to draft Jodie Foster to star in the film, which seems fitting, given the headache Foster's already had to deal with this year. [Deadline]
