Ron Howard Is Very Positive about His DARK TOWER Movie

Director Ron Howard, producer Brian Grazer, and writer Akiva Goldsman are hard at work trying to get their epic adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower into production. Howard recently tweeted out a little update on the adaptation...

It's great to see that he's still very positive about the project. We all know that it will eventually be made, it's only a matter of time. The movies are set up over at Warner Bros. and the TV part of the adaptation will go to HBO. This movie franchise is going to be huge! I'm a little surprised it's been this difficult to actually get it to the big screen. I can't wait to see what these guys are planning for us!

Here's a description of the story...

The Dark Tower is about the last living member of a knightly order of gunslingers, with Deschain becoming humanity’s last hope to save civilization as he hits the road to find the Dark Tower. Along the way, he encounters characters, good and bad, in a world that has an Old West feel.
