NY POST REPORT:
Ron Howard's Ambitious Stephen
King Project Isn't Dead Yet
Ron Howard hasn’t given up on plans for a multimedia Stephen King project, even though Universal bailed out on the plan about a month ago, reportedly due to cost cutting measures by the new owners Comcast.
The director and his producing partner Brian Grazer are looking for another studio for the ambitious adaptation of King’s “Dark Tower,” the New York Post reports.
Grazer told the publication that Howard is "trying to get outside financing to make it, and distribute it through a major."
Javier Bardem remains attached to star in the project as Roland Deschain. Grazer and Howard still envision the project as three movies and a spinoff television show.
Grazer did say that if and when a new studio signs on, the start of work on "Dark Tower" will be pushed back until at least 2012.
Les keep our fingers crossed, I love the books and think Howard and company will do the best job yet of bringing a Stephen King vehicle to the screen.
