Stephen King’s Dark Tower TO FAIL?

RIP The Dark Tower… For Now

This is definitely not the kind of news you’d want to hear at any hour, but we have to tell you regardless so you aren’t stuck waiting for something that may never happen.

Remember that amazing idea that Ron Howard had for an adaptation of Stephen King’s Dark Tower series? The one that had Javier Bardem lined up to play the lead in 3 movies and a 2 season TV series? You know, the raddest idea that Hollywood has had in a long time?

We just got word that Universal has pulled the plug on it.

Why? Because putting money into something that deserves it instead of shoddy remakes and sequels is “risky.”

Yet, after being announced with great fanfare last Fall, “The Dark Tower” ran up against a very different corporate culture after Comcast took over the studio in January.

More so than ex-corporate parent General Electric, Comcast leans toward the frugal, and the very expensive “Dark Tower” clearly left the people who control the purse strings uncomfortable.

That temporary delay became permanent this week, and now deprives Universal of a film series that it had hoped would become a linchpin for its film slate for years to come.

The studio declined to comment.

We’re pretty upset over this. Let’s hope that Imagine Entertainment, Howard and Grazer’s production company, can find a new home for it at a different studio — and that Universal learns its lesson the hard way by losing those who made millions of dollars in box-office revenue for them with American Gangster and A Beautiful Mind.
