Inside Pulse | Stephen King’s Dark Tower Series to Be Adapted for The Big and Little Screens

Ron Howard, Akiva Goldsmith, and Brian Grazer will be shepherding the project: Howard is set to direct, Goldsmith to write, and Grazer to produce. Goldsman had first mentioned The Dark Tower to Howard and Grazer while they worked on A Beautiful Mind nearly a decade ago.

According to Deadline’s Mike Flemming, the plan is to start with the feature film, and then create a bridge to the second feature with a season of TV episodes. That means the feature cast—and the big star who’ll play Deschain—also has to appear in the TV series before returning to the second film. After that sequel is done, the TV series picks up again, this time focusing on Deschain as a young gunslinger. Those storylines will be informed by a prequel comic book series that King was heavily involved in plotting. The third film would pick up the mature Deshain as he completes his journey. They will benefit from being able to use the same sets cast and crew for the movie and TV, which could help contain costs on what will be a financially ambitious undertaking.
This could be very very good.

I'm not all that sold on Ron Howard, he managed to completely fubar his Alamo movie.

Did he? I missed that one. There was some other movie he did that I thought wasn't so hot too, but I can't think of the name of it.

it's one of the biggest box office flops of all time, in terms of cost to profit ratio.
