The Dark Tower Movies Still Happening, Plus Actor Rumors!

It would not be exaggeration to say that the films (and possibly TV shows) based on Stephen King‘s The Dark Tower series have been on an extreme, ridiculous, and frankly exhausting rollercoaster ride for years now.  Fans of the sprawling epic have waited with baited breath as rumor after rumor hit the internet.  The story, after all, was told in seven mostly very lengthy novels over the course of King’s entire career and also involved a great deal of his other books.  To full encapsulate the story on film or on TV will be an extremely intense project that could honestly take decades.  Especially if things continue to move the way they have for the past few years.

Selick seemed like a shoe-in to adapt another spooky Neil Gaiman young adult novel for kids after his Oscar nominated Coraline. In fact, the production kind of dropped off the map for a while, until today.

Hollywood, why you gotta whip us back and forth like this? We reported almost exactly a month ago that the adaptation of Stephen King’s Dark Tower series was scrapped by Universal, but now you’re telling us that Ron Howard and Brian Grazer are still shopping around for financing and a new studio for their project. And while we’re not unhappy that the adaptation is showing new signs of life, we would at least like some finality on the subject either way. Oh? Hollywood doesn’t read this, and is, in fact, not one single entity that makes decisions as a whole? Moving on.
