Ron Howard, The Blackest Director We Know, Naturally Directing Jay-Z Documentary

Ron Howard, the man who most notably made a name for himself as the narrator of Arrested Development has taken a break from directing Rush (hey! He also directs films! Good for him!) to helm the Jay-Z documentary that follows Jigga Man as he puts on his own musical festival, the schizophrenic Made in America festival that features such disparate acts as:

  • Pearl Jam
  • Skrillex
  • Jay-Z
  • The Hives
  • Drake
  • Afrojack
  • And and handful more that I don’t really feel like acknowledging
Ron Howard is a gifted director, and seems to be an odd choice until one considers H.O.V.A.’s penchant for co-opting the mainstream in hip-hop culture.
Also, Bryce Dallas Howard probably told her dad she would just DIE unless he directed this documentary. The festival takes place Sept. 1-2, and the documentary doesn’t have a release date yet.
