Howard ready to father ‘Children’

Ron Howard will direct Universal’s adaptation of “The Emperor’s Children,” Claire Messud’s 2006 novel about New York’s upper crust, based on a script by Noah Baumbach. Imagine Entertainment acquired the book, about Ivy League grads approaching their 30s with trepidation in 2001, early this year as a possible directing vehicle for Howard, with partner Brian Grazer aboard to produce. Baumbach, a writer who has shown an affinity for writing about the East Coast elite, has been circling the project since at least mid-March.
