Dark Tower adaptation 'still alive'

20th July 2011

The film and TV adaptations of Stephen King's epic Dark Tower series may still be made, despite Universal recently casting doubt over the projects.

Written over a 30-year period, the seven Dark Tower books are among King's most acclaimed fantasy works and were set to be adapted as part of an ambitious project which would see three of the books turned into films and the rest form a TV mini-series.

Hollywood director Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer were both heavily involved with the adaptations, but earlier this week, Universal announced it was not going ahead with filming, which was scheduled to start this summer, due to budget cuts.

However, Warner Bros is now reportedly interested in the projects, given the Harry Potter films have come to an end and it is looking to create another big franchise.

The prospective financial backers at Warner Bros are also behind Peter Jackson's forthcoming adaptation of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit and they believe the Dark Tower series would make an equally epic adaptation.
