Bryce Dallas Howard to get her directorial debut with Sorta Like a Rock Star

After she's finished running for her life in JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM, film savvy redhead, Bryce Dallas Howard, will be making her directorial debut with SORTA LIKE A ROCK STAR, an adaptation of the Matthew Quick novel of the same name.

In the past, Howard has directed a series of short films as well as the music video that starred Lily Collins for the song "Claudia Lewis" by the band M83. For the time being, SORTA LIKE A ROCK STAR is under development, though if the film were to move forward, Howard would likely be the one to direct the feature. Ol Parker is said to have penned the latest draft of the script, and Lee Stollman and Marty Bowen are on-board to produce.

The story of SORTA LIKE A ROCK STAR centers around an optimistic high school student, Amber Appleton, who secretly lives in her mom’s school bus during her senior year after an altercation at home.

I've not seen any of Howard's short films, though I quite enjoy her bizarre take on M83's "Claudia Lewis." The video itself is well orchestrated, and uses the themes of the song to tell a tale of fear, rejection, and acceptance all within the span of a few minutes. While I enjoy Bryce in the various films she's contributed to, I'd be rather curious to see what she can do behind the camera with a feature-length format at her disposal.

Bryce Dallas Howard can next be seen in JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM which is set to open on June 22, 2018.
