The first picture of (what I think is the back of) Bryce Dallas Howard in the film adaptation of the popular novel 'The Help' have been released. Bryce stars alongside Emma Stone and Alison Janey in the story about about three women in the Deep South who have to overcome personal struggles. A young journalist (Stone) comes back to Mississippi to write a story about the way the slaves were treated before the Civil Rights movement. She interviews a former slave (played by Viola Davis) and Howard plays an obnoxious woman who mistreats her slaves. The film will be directed by Stockett’s childhood friend Tate Taylor and hits theaters August 12, 2011.
