Ron Howard to Direct Made in America Documentary

MTV is reporting that Ron Howard will be directing a behind-the-scenes documentary of Jay-Z's Made In American Festival which, of course, is being headlined by Pearl Jam.

... the movie will be a combination of footage shot before, during and after the event, with no release date confirmed at press time. It will mark Howard's first foray into filming a music documentary,
Ron Howard also told the New York Post:
It is going to be born through Jay-Z’s perspective . . . how he puts the event together.” Grazer added, “Jay stayed the king for a very long time . . . I can’t even begin to explain how he is capable of remaining relevant. He is a phenom, like a musical Michael Jordan.”
