JJ Abrams Puts Ron Howard To Work On Life Rewind Fantasy, All I’ve Got

The original All I’ve Got, or more properly Kol Ma She’Yesh Li, was an Israeli TV movie from about ten years ago. Here’s the premise, as per Vulture:

A young, very-much-in-love man and woman… get into a freak car accident in which the man is killed. Though the woman moves on and marries another man with whom she has three children, her own death 50 years later only opens more doors.

In the afterlife, she is given the choice of forgetting the memory of her life after the accident and becoming young again to be with her first love, or choosing to remain as she is and waiting for her second husband’s death.

I can’t paraphrase that because it leaves me with too many questions, I thought I better share it pretty much as they had it.

JJ Abrams and Bad Robot are producing a US, theatrical remake of the film and have apparently set Ron Howard as the project’s director. He’s not quite Guillermo Del Toro, or James Franco even, but Howard does know how to rack up little piles of in-development pictures.

Similarly, Bad Robot get a lot of things going but they don’t all make it all of the way.

The story premise put me in mind of Neil Gaiman‘s The Wedding Present, written originally as – tada! – a wedding present, then published in Smoke and Mirrors. You can listen to Gaiman read it via Last FM. It’s a fine story, amongst my favourite of his works.
