  1. The Dark Tower Movies Still Happening, Plus Actor Rumors!

    Ka Is A Wheel

    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.

  4. Ron Howard is in Talks With Disney, The Graveyard Book Movie Lives Again

    Oh Hollywood

    When negotiations between Henry Selick (Coraline, James and the Giant Peach, The Nightmare Before Christmas) and Disney broke down last year, after numerous delays on his unnamed feature stop-motion-animated film project, the exact status of The Graveyard Book adaptation was left uncertain. 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.

  10. No, Wait: The Dark Tower Might Happen After All After Budget Cuts

    There And Back Again

    Between this and Disney's Lone Ranger, 'tis the season of will they-won't they for big budget movie deals. If you've been following the saga of the film adaptation of Stephen King's sci-fi/fantasy/western series, you're aware that it went from huge to non-existent, to maybe existing. And now, producer Brian Grazer is strongly emphasizing the "existence" part of it, saying that they've made budget cuts to this gigantic production and it might be go for launch after all. He also says the movie's ending might be even more satisfying than the book's. But is it still going to be the planned behemoth TV/film deal starring Javier Bardem?

  11. Adaptation of Dark Tower May Still Have Some Life In It

    Oh Hollywood

    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.

  13. Ron Howard’s Dark Tower Adaptation Might Not Happen

    Nope. Still Not Happening.

    About a month ago, we reported on the huge deal Javier Bardem just made to play Roland Deschain in Ron Howard's film adaptation of Stephen King's sci-fi/fantasy/western series, The Dark Tower. It entailed a film trilogy that was to include an additional two-season TV deal intended to "bridge" the movies. And now it might not happen at all because of Universal's budget worries. Here is some context: Up until its most recent release, it had been releasing nothing but flops. That streak-breaking release: Fast [and Furious] Five.

  14. Javier Bardem Signs Huge Deal for The Dark Tower

    and let it be known

    Javier Bardem is going to be a busy guy. It was just announced that he will be taking the lead role, that of "gunslinger" Roland Deschain, in Ron Howard's adaptation of The Dark Tower series. Written by Stephen King, it is a series of seven books that King has called his "magnum opus," and it is described as a mixture of horror, western, fantasy, and science fiction. Not only that, but in addition to the main seven books, there are other King books that refer to the characters and storylines as well as a prequel comic. That translates into three movies and TV projects, maybe a series. So, don't try to hire Javier Bardem for a while.

  15. Cowboys & Aliens Trailer

    After the eh-ness that was the Green Lantern official trailer which leaked last night, the trailer for Cowboys & Aliens is refreshing in at least one way: It actually makes you want to see the film. The Jon Favreau-directed, Stephen Spielberg- and Ron Howard-produced film stars Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, and Olivia "I'm in House, in case you don't remember who I am" Wilde and is based on a short graphic novel of the same name, and is due in theaters on July 29, 2011.
