Ron Howard and writer Gore Vidal join Bill Maher, April 10 on HBO

Bill Maher is back on HBO for his Friday night wrap up of news, trends and analysis with some of the most diverse opinions and voices out there.

Ron Howard was recently announced to direct Image Comics’ graphic novel “The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft,” which is set to hit shelves this April. According to Variety, Universal and Howard's company Imagine Entertainment have bought the rights to the novel, and are planning it as a director’s vehicle for Howard.

The graphic novel is described as a nod to the classic Universal horror movies like Dracula and Frankenstein. The story is a bit of a Roman à clef of Lovecraft; his nightmares come to life, and the evils of his imagination are set loose upon the world. The premise borrows elements of his real life, such as family mental illness and his writer’s block.
