In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, director Ron Howard discussed his upcoming Formula One racing-based movie Rush, but also discussed a bit about the state of The Dark Tower: “We are continuing to work on the script to find ways to make the budget more manageable and still deliver the work in a way that the project deserves,” he said. “We were always racing and fast-tracking the project, so I always wince when I see something written about it and there’s a release date in there. These kinds of projects often take years to come together in the right ways. But I am in love with the material, and the minute it can come together in the right way, I am fully committed to it.”
Not sure how this goes along with the related TV series reportedly finding a network – hopefully we will get more clarity soon – but Howard certainly seems committed to bringing it to the screen.
