In a recent interview with Yahoo, Ron Howard is asked if Bryce has ever tried to get him to be in one of her directed films. Check out his answer below ↓
I know your daughter, Jurassic World star Bryce Dallas Howard, has spent the past few years directing short films — most recently Solemates, which played at this past January’s Sundance Film Festival. Has she tried to get you to act in one of her productions?
Well, she hasn’t yet, and she’s always bothering me about wanting me to cast her in something. I have called her a couple of times, and she’s turned me down. [Laughs]
But the reality is that she loves the process, she’s worked with so many interesting directors, and she adores acting and is very challenged by that — but she definitely will direct feature films at some point, I’m sure.
I keep telling her, the best way for us to work together may wind up being you casting me in something: ‘Maybe I’ll finally make time in my schedule to act again if it’s you I’m working for.’ So we’ll see. She’s got the next Jurassic to think about in the near horizon, so that’s going to eat up some time.
NEW PROJECT!! Welcome Bryce back to social media when she returns in July! If you would like to participate, send an email to [email protected] or tweet to @BDHnetwork

June 19, 2016 — “David Lowery and Bryce Dallas Howard Shed Light on Pete’s Dragon”
“I remember I was developing a few projects, and I saw “Up,” and I made a decision. I was, like, every movie I do is starting with the character as a child because it’s so … when you see a child when we’re watching movies, or experiencing theater, or entertainment, or art in any form, we’re leaning toward the truth. We want to see the truth. We know what feels truthful, and we know what doesn’t feel truthful because we’re human beings and that’s how we’re designed.”

“Prior to reading the script, I had heard that it was not a straight-up remake, and that was the yes for me,” said Howard. “What has centered that film and what has made that film last is that central idea of friendship with an imaginary friend when you have no family, and then voilà , it’s not such an imaginary friend,” She added “I want there to be beautiful films out there that have innocence, and are timeless, and have really beautiful values without being didactic.”

“J.A.’s over in Europe right now, so I haven’t seen him in person. I’m sure he wouldn’t… because you know what, the emailing and texting, you can’t go on record.

“There were often times when I would ask Oakes for direction, like I would say ‘What do you think?’ like he’d really know what to say, he reminded me of my dad in a lot of ways because it’s just sort of this talent.. he’s a self-aware person but he’s not aware of the extent of his talent, he’s just really relaxed about it and has a sense of everything, he really understands a movie set.”
