J.J. Abrams is producing and developing a feature film adaptation of a 2003 Israeli TV movie of the week called Kol Ma She'Yesh Li (in English, All I’ve Got). It's set up through his Bad Robot productions, and they've brought on Ron Howard to direct it.
I'm sure a lot of you have never heard of this movie, but that's OK, neither have I. Thanks to Vulture we have a little description for you,
All I’ve Got is equal parts The Notebook and — if we’re not dating ourselves too much — Albert Brooks’s Defending Your Life: a fantasy-thriller about a young, very-much-in-love man and woman who get into a freak car accident in which the man is killed. Though the woman moves on and marries another man with whom she has three children, her own death 50 years later only opens more doors. In the afterlife, she is given the choice of forgetting the memory of her life after the accident and becoming young again to be with her first love, or choosing to remain as she is and waiting for her second husband’s death.
This is definitely an interesting premise, and I can easily see Howard and Abrams developing this type of movie. Howard is a great director, who's currently working on his Formula One film Rush. There's no word on when he will be making this new movie, but it's very cool to see him and Abrams working together. Does this sound like an interesting film project to you?
I wonder what going on with Howard's Dark Tower series. I hope it's not completely dead!
