Ron Howard and Brian Grazer are at Cannes unveiling several projects in the pipeline, but the only one we care about is The Dark Tower, AKA Shut Up And Take My Money. The project has been beset with problems. The eight books were adapted as three feature films with two seasons of a TV show to bridge the films, with Javier Bardem signed to play gunslinger Roland Deschain. Bardem’s contract ran out and Russell Crowe signed on in his stead. Then both Warner and Universal passed on the ambitious series. Last we heard, Media Rights Capital were considering using their windfall from unexpected blockbuster Ted to take over the project, and the Vice President of Content at Netflix expressed interest in the TV show. But has anything come from these talks?
