Big-bud­get King given green light

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

The trades are buzzing with de­bate about whether John Carter counts as a mas­sive flop. (The US fig­ures were poor, but some over­seas ter­ri­to­ries de­liv­ered.) It, thus, seems like an odd time to an­nounce that an­other longges­tated fan­tasy adap­ta­tion is fi­nally about to roll.

Re­ports sug­gest that Ron Howard is to di­rect a bigscreen take on Stephen King’s sprawl­ing novel se­quence The Dark Tower. Javier Bar­dem will star as gun­slinger Roland Deschain and Akiva Golds­man, who wrote A Beau­ti­ful Mind, is set to pen the script. Warner Bros will pro­vide the big bucks.
