The Dark Tower Movie Lives

I unfortunately thought that the adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower was dead in the water. This adaptation has had more ups and downs than a yo-yo, but, I bring you some good news on this one for once.

Producer Brain Grazer recently spoke to indieWire and gave them a little insight as to where the film is;

“We found a way to cut out $45 million out of the budget without changing the scope and actually giving it a good ending,” Grazer said, suggesting a heavily re-worked approach. “In the $140 million draft, the ending wasn’t quite as satisfying. Now, we’ve got $45 million, $50 million out of the way and a really satisfying ending. It’s gonna get made.”

I guess Hollywood was just throwing money around with out any thought, good to see they managed to cut a chunk out of that huge budget and hopefully we get an awesome film.

It is still said to be directed by Ron Howard with Akiva Goldsman writing the script.
