FROM Ron Howard
Ron Howard Ron Howard talks with Kim Masters about his two new films and how he handles big changes in the movie business. Howard shows himself to be a case study in adaptability; he's made a documentary for the first time in his career (Made in America will air on Showtime October 11); his new feature film, Rush , was rejected by the studios so he made it independently -- making it his first film financed outside the studio world in 36 years. He's become an avid Twitterer, regularly tweeting out photos to his 700,000+ followers. And while he admits that some of the changes in the business worry him -- after all Universal pulled the plug on his adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower series -- he essentially reflects that changes is inevitable and cyclical.
