THE DARK TOWER may be moving to HBO. In an interview with MTV, Ron Howard’s producing partner Brian Grazer announced that the planned television chapters will be aired on HBO. As for the movies, they have yet to find a new studio to front the budget (which they’ve cut $45 million from to try and attract a studio).
A word of caution: though HBO would make for a fantastic home for THE DARK TOWERÂ there is still nothing confirmed…Imagine has done nothing more than pitch the concept to HBO, at least according to Deadline. Once HBO announces then I’ll believe that this may happen. Also, Ron Howard is still attached to direct with Akiva Goldsman writing so regardless of studio this will most likely end up a shitty adaptation.
