Ron Howard To Direct “Seveneves”

Ron Howard and his “Apollo 13” scribe Bill Broyles look to be re-teaming for an adaptation of Neal Stephenson’s novel “Seveneves” for Skydance Productions

The story centers on a catastrophic event that renders Earth a ticking time bomb, and nations come together to devise a plan to ensure the survival of humanity in outer space.

Five millenia later, their progeny – seven races now and three billion strong – embark on another audacious journey to an alien world utterly transformed by cataclysm and time: Earth.

Howard, Brian Grazer, Erica Huggins, David Ellison and Dana Goldberg would produce.
