Over a year ago, I heard they were going to make a Dark Tower movie, possible starring Javier Bardem. What is the latest with the plan to make a movie(s) out of Stephen King's Dark Tower series?

There is still hope! The project stalled for a while, JJ Abrams and others turned it down because it was too huge. But Ron Howard and Brian Grazer are working up two plans. One option is three movies with TV mini-series in between. Starring Russell Crowe as Roland. Supposedly they have new funding from some software mogul. Anyway that's what I heard back in March 2013.

  • Well, they are doing one now, and aside from their choice of actor for Roland, it looks ridiculous. – can-ned_food Jul 26 '17 at 14:31
