  • Universal Pictures has decided not to go forward with the development and production of "The Dark Tower" films and TV Series, that were to be directed by Ron Howard and star Javier Bardem.
    The studio had previously considered reducing the budget and postponing the production start, but recently decided to cancel the project entirely.

  • The filmmakers will now seek alternative financing and studio to back the production. Possible contenders could include Warner Bros, where writer-producer Akiva Goldsman's production company is based.

  • It is rumored that Universal would only consider putting up the budget for one film, but the filmmakers could not agree to that.
