5F19RonHoward.jpgCinematical was hoping that Arrested Development narrator/executive producer Ron Howard was so busy working on television's best show, that he just wouldn't have time to direct any of his patented, Oscar-baiting sentimentalist pap. It looks like we hoped for naught: Howard (seen here in Simpsons form) and Imagine partner Brian Grazer are planning to produce a script by Stephen Belber called The Power of Duff, about a TV news anchor who starts praying live on air and, in the words of Variety, "becomes a most controversial TV figure" when his prayers are subsequently answered. Russell Crowe will probably star.
