Howard Takes Us Inside His Ambitious 'Dark Tower'
“I don’t know if it’s going to happen or not, but I’m developing with Akiva Goldsman, the guy who wrote A Beautiful Mind and Cinderella Man, a version of Stephen King’s Dark Tower series of fantasy stories And there is an element of it, if everything goes as planned, that we would like to do on tv. So we want to do part of it big screen, and then a lot of the character stuff — because Stephen King’s stuff is so interesting and fascinating, and instead of trying to wedge it into a movie, let the movies be adventure and action.”
If any other director was talking about a project of this magnitude, it would probably seem laughable, but Howard's the kind of A-lister who could pull this off. And with a proposed cast that could see either Viggo Mortensen or Javier Bardem in the lead role, this is one to look out for. (Slashfilm)
