The Dark Tower Gets A Release Date

Universal has locked in release dates for some of its big upcoming movies, among them Ron Howard's adaptation of Stephen King's Dark Tower..

Ron Howard's Dark Tower adaptation will make history, as he and Universal are bringing together a movie trilogy and tv series based on Stephen King's much loved novels/comics. And now wed have a release date. The first of the trilogy is set for release on Friday, May 17, 2013.

Just a little bit of a wait then! But it could really be worth it. Apparently the plan is to start with the first film in the trilogy and link the following films with a season of Tv episodes between them. This epic undertaking has drawn comparison to Peter Jackson's work on LOTR, and Howard acknowledges and invites it..



“What Peter did was a feat, cinematic history. The approach we’re taking also stands on its own, but it’s driven by the material. I love both, and like what’s going on in TV. With this story, if you dedicated to one medium or another, there’s the horrible risk of cheating material. The scope and scale call for a big screen budget. But if you committed only to films, you’d deny the audience the intimacy and nuance of some of these characters and a lot of cool twists and turns that make for jaw-dropping, compelling television. We’ve put some real time and deep thought into this, and a lot of conversations and analysis from a business standpoint, to get people to believe in this and take this leap with us. I hope audiences respond to it in a way that compels us to keep going after the first year or two of work. It’s fresh territory for me, as a filmmaker.”
