Ron Howard Talks Dark Tower Film! It's Still Happening!

ron howard still doing dark tower

Last month, we were bummed to hear that Universal Pictures had decided to push back production on The Dark Tower until February due to budget issues.

Then last week, we were bummed yet again to hear that the film's script was being rewritten AND that director Ron Howard was reportedly considering bailing on the project.

It was beginning to seem like Dark Tower may be doomed, but Ron Howard has spoken up about the project, and based on what he's saying now, it sounds like the project is still very much a go!

Here's Ron on the film's delays:

Javier Bardem Closing Deal For The Dark Tower

javier bardem closin dark tower deal

Waaaay back in May, we learned that a film based on Stephen King's Dark Tower series was in the works!

Now, almost a year later, wheels are moving, and No Country For Old Men/Biutiful star Javier Bardem is closing a deal to star in the film as gunslinger Roland Deschain.

For those of you who aren't familiar with the character/series, Deschain is "humanity’s last hope to save civilization," and he encounters peril on his way to Mount Doom The Dark Tower!

Fans of Bardem will be excited to hear that the deal he's working on will not only attach him to a trilogy of films, BUT will also attach him to a "TV component" and lots and lots of $$$.

As we've said before, we're not TOO familiar with the Dark Tower series, but we know that it has a fan-base that's totally obsessed! We're excited for them.

Do U think Javier Bardem is right for the lead character in The Dark Tower series?
