    Looks like The Dark Tower is dead again.

    Despite their enthusiasm for the project, I'm starting to think that Ron Howard, Brian Grazer and Akiva Goldsman, as well as Russell Crowe, are the wrong people to make this, and that they are the reasons that it keeps getting rejected by studios. Maybe it has to do with their idea of making it a muliti-media theatrical and televison hybrid, or maybe it's just because they're not bankable names anymore. I really do think if they had someone like Christopher Nolan (and I'm not being a Nolanite saying this... because I'm not) and Christian Bale or even Hugh Jackman involved and it was either a movie series or a television series (not both) Warner Brothers would definitely have gotten behind it.

    Once again, this project is ressurect in the rumor mill, unforntunately with Howard still attached. Ugghh. However, some new names are coming forward:

    Aaron Paul Has Had Meetings About Playing 'Eddie Dean' In THE DARK TOWER

    Is Liam Neeson Interested In 'Gunslinger' Role In Ron Howard's THE DARK TOWER?

    I think Aaron Paul would make a great Eddie. I'm still hoping they sign Timothy Olphant for Roland though.

    The project has been cancelled under Ron Howard's direction, but some concept art is appearing on the net:

    First Look: Ron Howard's Adaptation Of Stephen King's THE DARK TOWER (Cancelled)

    This film should be done by Frank Darabont, I'm sure he probably doesn't want to dedicate ten years of his life to it, but he is the man to do it. Not Opie.

    Well this is DT related:

    Matthew McConaughey Wanted to Play Randall Flagg in The Stand? - ComingSoon.net

    McConaghy as Randall Flagg is one of those roles he was born to play.

    Script for The Stand is complete:

    Josh Boone Has Completed THE STAND Script & Stephen King Loves It

    I think with this film, we might get DT taken serious. I just hope Howard is far away from it.

    Now this isn't exactly shocking news, since we all know you can't do a faithful adaptation in just 3 hours.

    Stephen King Hints Josh Boone's THE STAND Will Be Split Into 2 Films

    Josh Boone now confirms there will be 4 films:

    Josh Boone's THE STAND Will Now Be Four Movies Instead Of One

    Let's hope the studio realizes they can also do Dark Tower and create a Stephen King shared universe, since that's all the rage nowadays.
