Warners Revives King’s “Dark Tower”?

Warner Bros. Pictures is very close to a deal that could see the resurrection of Ron Howard’s adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” which previously imploded at Universal reports Deadline.

Previously the plan was to do three films and two limited-run TV series based on the mammoth seven book post-apocalyptic western series. Now Warners has picked up Akiva Goldsman’s script for the first feature and are paying him to do a polish.

Howard remains attached to direct, likely in very early 2013, while Javier Bardem looks to still be starring as gunslinger Roland Deschain depending upon his availability. Goldsman, King and Brian Grazer will produce.

If the TV component moves forward, Warners-owned HBO now seems certain to be the home of the series.
