Dark Tower Films See Rewrite and New Budget - Updated
October 24th, 2011 12:46:12 pm

IndieWire is reporting that Gabe Toro has spoken with Brian Grazer and learned the Dark Tower films are very much still in the works. Their brief conversation yields news about a script rewrite that offers a more "satisfying" ending as well as a revised budget with 40-50 million trimmed out.  Clearly, both of these points should enable The Dark Tower property to be reconsidered for production by the major Hollywood studios.
 
This news is more than welcome here at StephenKing.com. It's been several months since any news had been learned about the fate of the series. It's a relief to know that the team with so much talent and ability might still have a chance to bring their respectable vision to the masses. We'll keep you posted.
