Brush Up On Your Harr In Prep For Frears' Next

In 2001 it looked sure that Ron Howard was to direct The Burial, from Doug Wrights script adapted from Jonathan Harr's piece in The New York Times. Now it seems that Howard's involvement is history and Stephen Frears is being lined up to direct. Let's hope the same handover occurs with Frost/Nixon somewhere down the line - and sooner rather than later.

The original The Burial piece is online as a pdf file, with the first page below as a jpeg, to get you hooked. There's nothing more for me to say, the piece says it all, and better than I ever could - just read it.
