Bryce Dallas Howard selected for her directorial debut movie to make a film about dads. But at first, her personal father, Ron Howard, didn’t need to embrace their very own household story.
That modified midway via the filming of her documentary “Dads,” nevertheless, when her brother found that he and his spouse would expect their first little one.
“I also pitched maybe that I could integrate some of my own family story, and my dad was like, ‘No. No. You’re not allowed to,” Howard advised TheWrap’s Beatrice Verhoeven. “The whole time, I kept being like, we need to profile a dad who is an expecting dad, who hasn’t had a kid yet. We need to capture that before and after. And as filming was progressing, we just kept not finding him. And when I learned that, I was like, hmm, we’re going to be in this movie.”
“Dads” profiles well-known humorous males like Judd Apatow, Will Smith, Jimmy Fallon, Neil Patrick Harris, Kenan Thompson, Jimmy Kimmel and Ken Jeong about their experiences as fathers. But Howard additionally toured around the globe to profile non-famous dads in Brazil, Japan and the United States, even partnering with a Brazilian institute that wishes to vary the best way dads are sometimes seen within the media.
The institute focuses on “non-violent masculinity, breaking down gender stereotypes and specifically around really tackling the stigma of fathers being caregivers,” Howard stated.
“I love talking to dads about their kids. Within 15 seconds of our conversation, it’s always, ‘how are they doing, what’s going on,’” Howard added. “Wouldn’t it be awesome to talk to stand-up comedians who view the world through a lens of comedy who are fathers themselves, and they can be our Greek chorus.”
“Dads” made its premiere at TIFF and was acquired by Apple as a part of its Apple TV+ streaming service, the place it at present may be seen. Watch TheWrap’s interview with Howard above.
