Ron Howard to Direct Brain Scientist's "My Stroke of Insight"

Posted: October 2nd, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Ron Howard to Direct Brain ScientistSubmit Comment
Deadline is reporting that Ron Howard (Da Vinci Code) will direct "My Stroke of Insight," based on the memoir of brain scientist Jill Bolte Taylor. Howard is currently speaking to Jodie Foster to star in the film.

Plot: In late 1996, the 37-year old Taylor suffered a massive stroke caused by a blood vessel that exploded in the left side of her brain. A Harvard-trained neuro-anatomist, Taylor's brain function deteriorated in a matter or hours to where she couldn't walk, read or write, or even recall past memories.

It took 8 years for her to mend. Her knowledge of how the brain works gave her the opportunity to experience and write about brain recovery that became at times a mystical experience, as the right half compensated for the damaged left half and infused her with feelings of peace and well-being that she has tried to retain, even after struggling to reclaim her life and standing in the scientific community.

Semi Chellas is writing the script and the real Jill Bolte Taylor will produce.

I'm sure Ron Howard will make his best to make this an average movie.

@Rambo

Yeah. When you said that, I immediately thought of " A Beautiful Mind ".

They oughta rename is " Get Up On The Down Stroke " and star George Clinton in it.

Am I really the only one who immediately thought this sounded like a porn title?

If you like this, watch "The diving bell and the butterfly", it's a very good movie

When is Ron Howard going to make a new Happy Days sketch apologising to America (and the whole world even) for previously asking the electorate to vote for the Obamanation?
