Bryce Dallas Howard, the daughter of filmmaker Ron Howard gave heartfelt gratefulness to veteran actor Clint Eastwood. During a rough time, the actor stood up for Ron Howard when no one else did. When Clint Eastwood gave a stand-up ovation to the filmmaker, people followed suit and gave Ron Howard the respect that he deserved.
How Clint Eastwood Commanded Respect For Ron Howard
Ron Howard began his career in the 40s but got the recognition for his movies during his later years. In 1988, Ron Howard directed a sci-fi movie titled Willow. The film was not received very well but gained a cult following in the following years.
According to Bryce Dallas Howard, the veteran actor Clint Eastwood saved her father as he stood up for a standing ovation for the film when no one else did. The people later stood up alongside Clint Eastwood and gave standing ovations to Willow. This event was important for Ron Howard’s career since George Lucas (the creator of Star Wars) had given the project to the budding director.
While talking to DailyMail, the actress recalled the scenario when the people gave his father a standing ovation and she became eternally grateful to Clint Eastwood.
“My dad made a film called Willow when he was a young filmmaker, which screened at the Cannes film festival and people were booing afterwards. It was obviously so painful for him, and Clint, who he didn’t know at that time, stood up and gave him a standing ovation and then everyone else stood up because Clint did.”
“Clint puts himself out there for people. As a director he is very cool, very relaxed, there’s no yelling ‘action’ or ‘cut’. He just says: ‘You know when you’re ready.’ I told my dad he should do that!”
How Disney Picked Up Ron Howard’s Failed Movie
In recent news, Disney is all geared up for the release of Willow. The series will pick up Ron Howard’s 1988 movie Willow and will work as a sequel (kind of) to the original. The series is also in news for being the first Disney work to portray a queer relationship on the center stage.
The series will feature a queer relationship between a lady knight and the princess and will be the center stage for the story to unfold. Warwick Davis will reprise his role as Willow Ufgood from the original Ron Howard movie. Many people took unkindly to Willow and slammed Disney for being too much woke. Willow will premiere on 30th November 2022 and will be available to stream on Disney+.
