Never say die, Dark Tower fans! Today some more chatter about the project’s film and TV adaptations is coming in from producer Brian Grazer, and it’s pretty encouraging.
Grazer told the NY Post’s Page Six that despite Universal’s refusal to commit to the sweeping project, he and director Ron Howard aren’t giving up and are now “trying to get outside financing to make it and distribute it through a major [studio].” Grazer said they also plan to go ahead with the TV spin-offs of the horror Western fantasies, but through other networks or possibly an outlet like Netflix.
No matter what happens, the project, which still has Javier Bardem attached to star as gunslinger Roland Deschain, will have to be put off until at least next year. Grazer added, “Ron is now going to be working on the Formula One racing movie ‘Rush’ about Niki Lauda so the soonest we could do it would be June next year.”
Well, later is better than never, right? Keep it here for more as it comes.
