Imagine Entertainment

Ron
Howard

Chairman / Director / Producer

The Imagine Entertainment co-founder — who melted American hearts as 6-year-old Opie Taylor and then as impish teen Richie Cunningham — recently struck out with the big-screen “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” but that was essentially a salvage job, anyway. Howard got the call after Phil Lord and Chris Miller left mid-shoot. Despite basking in Oscar’s light twice — “Frost/Nixon” and “A Beautiful Mind” — the Everyman director has suffered the sting of flops, including big-budget busts “In the Heart of the Sea” and “Inferno.” Next up is a documentary about opera star Luciano 
Pavarotti, and he’ll helm the romantic drama “The Girl Before” and sci-fi flick “Seveneves.” Imagine still makes films but has moved more into television, scoring with the likes of “Genius” and “Empire.”
