For some time now, we've all been wondering whether or not Stephen King's Dark Tower was finally going to be turned into a film. If not, then we've been waiting for word that it was dead and buried. According to Digital Spy, Ron Howard is still working on The Dark Tower as we speak. Sadly for the fans, Ron Howard has refused to give out any sort of time table in regards to when we will see a film of any kind. Ron Howard recently told Empire that " We've all taken a vow of silence about the progress, the headway, what we think our timetable is, because I don't think I realized how much media interest there was in the title and how much excitement there was. It's fascinating, powerful possibility and even Stephen King acknowledges it's a tricky adaptation. But to be honest, from a financing side, it's not a straightforward, four-quadrant, sunny Superhero story, It's dark- it's horror. That edge that appeals to me, the complexities of those characters is what appeals to all of us. And I think Stephen King really respects that, with Akiva Goldsman and myself, that's what we love about it, and that's what we want to try and get to the screen." Howard went on to say: "So my answer is: it got delayed, it's never gone away. We're working on it, and Stephen is very patient with us. and Akiva's just gone off and directed Winter's Tale. I'm continuing to work, but The Dark Tower Dreams -fever dreams, rather-are still there, but we're not going to give it a timetable." Ron Howard's film Rush, starring Chris Hemsworth, is out in theaters. You can check out the trailer for Rush below!
