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:

More Dark Tower Problems! Director Ron Howard MAY Jump Ship

ron howard may bail on dark tower

Hopefully they can get back on track! We were excited for this project!

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

Now, it looks like Dark Tower might be in even more trouble, because Universal is saying that the film's script is being rewritten and sources are saying that director Ron Howard is ready to bail on the project.

Delays…script issues…director issues…DOESN'T sound good at all!

We seriously hope they can figure something out, though. We were pumped to see Javier Bardem in this role!

What do U think? Is The Dark Tower doomed? Who do U think they should get to direct if Ron Howard bails?

Universal Considering Pulling Out Of The Dark Tower

Uh-oh.

Stephen King's The Dark Tower hasn't even gone into production and it's already having some setbacks.

The studio behind the movie, Universal, is said to be having second thoughts on their plan on go forward on the film.

The movie was set to expand into a trilogy and two TV series, but it seems that the failure of some recent Universal films, such as Land of the Lost, Robin Hood, The Wolfman, and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, have made the studio think twice before heading into such an epic and costly project.

If Universal does decide to pull out of the trilogy, then director Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer will have to shop the movie around, which would definitely delay its May 17, 2013 release.

Maybe this will be a blessing in disguise? Universal may not be equipped to adapt the film in a way that will not disappoint fans.

Even though the movie will be huge and extremely costly to make, it seems that it will need to find a studio that will know how to market the film to the general public. We're not sure if Universal was the right choice.

Hmm, we don't know…

What do U think? Should Universal pass??

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?

King's The Dark Tower Books Headed For The Big Screen!

Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersBusiness Blitz

Wow! This came together VERY quickly!

Stephen King's hugely successful The Dark Tower books will be getting not only the film treatment, but may also become a TV series!

King is apparently in very serious discussions to adapt his seven edition fantasy series with Akiva Goldsman of Weed Road, as well as Imagine Entertainment's Brian Grazer and Ron Howard. The team, who worked together on A Beautiful Mind, are hoping to re-work this story into a cohesive screen trilogy in the vein of Lord of the Rings.

Goldsman is apparently working on the script, with Howard set to direct.

Sounds like it has the potential to be really cool!

We're not too familiar with the books, but we know people are OBSESSED with them, so what do U think??

Are U happy The Dark Tower books are becoming movies, or should they just be left alone??
