Best-selling author says the planned small screen take on his epic book series will not be related to this year's big screen misfire.
Stephen King has offered up his two cents as to why the recent adaptation of his book 'The Dark Tower' lost its shirt at the box office.
The review embargo has lifted for the long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower' and it's not looking pretty.
It’s the moment Stephen King fans have been waiting for – his fantasy epic ‘The Dark Tower’ has finally been brought to life. After some teasers from its stars Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey on Twitter yesterday, and some pretty cool motion posters released online, we’ve got our first proper look at the forthcoming movie. Elba plays the ‘gunslinger’ Roland Deschain, the last of his kind who roam the post-apocalyptic Mid-World, which exists in parallel to Earth, in search of the ‘dark tower’, the nexus of all universes.
Fans waiting for the movie adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘The Dark Tower’ will have to wait a bit longer as it’s being reported that the film has been pushed back from its February 2017 release date. Entertainment Weekly reports the Nikolaj Arcel-directed film will now be released by Sony Pictures next summer to give the production more time to complete the visual effects and effectively pre-promote the release. The film wrapped in July, but with a relatively meagre budget (for a VFX-heavy blockbuster anyway) of $60m, it seems there simply wasn’t enough time available to hit the original 17 February release date without adding millions to the cost of the film.
