"The Dark Tower" by Steven King has been cancelled by Universal Pictures. It ran into trouble as it was supposed to start shooting this summer but in late spring, Universal announced there would be a delay to make the movie more cost-effective. It looks like they were not able to do that.
The project was to be directed by Ron Howard with Javier Bardem to star. Universal is not making any more comments public about "The Dark Tower" although 3 movies were to be made. Comcast took over Universal after the movie was agreed upon last fall.
No word on how Imagine Entertainment feels about Universal's decision not to make the movie now after all.-Dr.FB
