We’re still bummed about Universal pulling the plug on Ron Howard’s really ambitious take on adapting the much beloved Stephen King saga The Dark Tower. Are we surprised though? Not really. Another person who saw this coming was King himself.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, King offered the following comments on the film’s demise:
“I’m sorry Universal passed, but not really surprised,” he told EW. “As a rule, they’ve been about smaller and less risky pix; maybe they feel it would be better to stick with those fast and furious racing boys. I bear them no ill will and trust Ron Howard to get Roland and his friends before the camera somewhere else. He’s very committed to the project.”
