The project is an English-language remake of a 2003 Israeli TV movie of the same name. The story follows a young woman who gets in a freak car accident that kills her husband. In time, the woman moves on, gets re-married and has three children, but when she dies, 50 years after the accident, the afterlife presents an intriguing option. She can either have the memories of her life after the accident wiped clean, to become young again with her first love, or she can remain how she is to wait for her second husband.
Margalit Keren wrote the original Israeli teleplay, though it is not known if she will be involved in the remake. A screenwriter has not been attached at this time.
Ron Howard's last directorial effort was the 2011 comedy The Dilemma, with his Formula 1 racing movie Rush debuting this fall. He has also been trying to set up the sprawling adaptation The Dark Tower for the past few years, so far, to no avail.
