Looks like those who'd like to see a film or TV adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower series are going to be waiting for a while:
Warner Bros. has gone the same route as Universal, passing on Ron Howard and Akiva Goldsman's planned two-platform adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower. The proposal, a simultaneous multi-film and television series, is certainly ambitious, but also expensive and risky.
Clearly, the time has come for a TV series/movie crossover event. Marvel is in the early stages of planning an Avengers TV show with Joss Whedon, but this Dark Tower series sounds riskier because it's a finite story with no proven movie property to tie the whole thing to. What do you think?
Did Warner Brothers and Universal Make the Right Decision By Passing on The Dark Tower Series?
