Producer Says The Dark Tower Adaptation Isn't 'Back On'
This really is nothing new in the realm of The Dark Tower. We have stories in our database dating all the way back to 2007, when noted King aficionados like Frank Darabont and Damon Lindelof entertained the notion that they would be able to translate the story of Roland, the Gunslinger, to the silver screen… in some fashion.

Aaron Paul Met With Ron Howard About Playing Eddie Dean In The Dark Tower
"I've had a ton of meetings on that. I just had a general sit down with Ron Howard, who is a huge fan of the show, which is such a crazy thing to even think that Ron Howard even knows who I am," Paul said. "They're definitely planning on making it. … I'm excited."

Ron Howard Says The Dark Tower Adaptation Isn't Dead After All
The Dark Tower is something that we’re still working on,” Howard said in the Empire Podcast. “We’ve all taken a vow of silence about the progress, the headway, what we think our timetable is, because I don’t think I realized how much media interest there was in the title and how much excitement there was.”

Aaron Paul Wants To Play Eddie Dean In Stephen King's The Dark Tower
Dean is a New York junkie pulled into a fantasy world by rambling gunslinger Roland of Gilead. He’s a deeply flawed but ultimately heroic character, and he’s characterized by his bravery and sarcasm. Paul would be so perfect in the role. And as Breaking Bad has proven, this powerful actor easily could hold his own alongside any other actor cast as Roland.

Warner Bros. Passes On The Dark Tower Series Movies
As of a couple of weeks ago, it was looking like the fate of the feature adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower series would be determined at some point this month. And sure enough, the verdict from Warner Bros. is in, and it's not good. Word is, the studio has decided to pass on the project.

The Future Of The Dark Tower To Be Decided Soon, Russell Crowe To Star?
Back when Ron Howard's adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower was set up over at Universal, the top actor that kept being mentioned in connection with the character Roland Deschain was Javier Bardem. But while rumors constantly suggested that the Oscar winner was on the verge of a deal, it was also said that Bardem simply wanted the part and no contract had been signed.

The Dark Tower Could Have A New Home At Warner Bros.
It seemed like an empty promise back in August of last year when director Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer said that they would let their adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower die. While the format - three films and a television series to fill the time gaps - was something that all of the fans could get behind, the whole thing seemed too big for any studio to take a risk on. That could change.

Ron Howard And Brian Grazer Won't Let The Dark Tower Die
Howard and Grazer continue to seek financing for their planned adaptation, which could span three movies and a television series. One new bit of news is that Grazer is contemplating airing the TV component of the story on Netflix. The video streaming system, if you recall, paid handsomely for the rights to the drama series House of Cards. It could be the ideal home for an experimental drama series such as this.

Universal Passes On Ron Howard's The Dark Tower
I can pretend to be surprised by this, but I won't waste your time.

Ron Howard Abandoning Dark Tower And Directing Spy vs. Spy Instead?
Many seem to think the whole project is pretty much doomed. They hint that the reason we’re hearing Howard’s name suddenly involved in so many different projects all at once, is because word around Hollywood is that he’s about to be freed up from Dark Tower and so everyone’s going to him looking to bring him on board their project.

Howard wasn't really forthcoming with many more details, probably because there's still a lot up in the air as he tackles the ridiculously ambitious project of adapting King's story into a feature film, then a six-hour miniseries, then another feature.

The Dark Tower Isn't Cancelled, But It Could Be Getting Pushed Back
Today, Dark Tower fans, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that a The Dark Tower project involving three movies and two limited-run television shows is still in the works after last week's drama.

Javier Bardem On The Verge Of Closing Deal For The Dark Tower
