Having been passed over by Universal (and, if producer Brian Grazer is to have been believed in the first, HBO, since nothing’s happened since Glazer said it was a done deal), Ron Howard’s massive Dark Tower project, once full of self-confidence and bravado, slunk over to Warner Bros. and asked politely if maybe they’d be interested in giving them a shit-ton of money to make three movies and two TV series.
Warner Bros. has answered, and, shockingly, it’s a no. WB has passed, and now The Dark Tower
is without a home yet again — and without formerly attached star Javier Bardem, too. I can’t imagine any other studio else willing (or even able) to pony up that much money for the project; more likely we’ll get one movie and then folks will see how it does and maybe think about a sequel or two then… if we get anything at all. Which we probably won’t. (Via First Showing
