'The Dark Tower' now in Ron Howard's hands

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot production company, which has long sought to crack Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" book series as a television series, no longer has the rights to one of the author's biggest properties.

Bad Robot has returned the rights to the best-selling author. Now Ron Howard, Brian Grazer and Akiva Goldsman are teaming up to tackle the fantasy Western.

The three are in discussions to adapt the material as a movie, to be written by Goldsman and directed by Howard, that would lead to a TV series produced by Imagine's small-screen division.

"Tower" is not set up for production, nor has any option deal been made, but insiders say Universal, home to full story

Ron Howard is such a gifted filmmaker, directing films such as The Da Vinci Code, and A Beautiful Mind (This is a  film I will never forget as long as I live.  I still think Russell Crowe should have won Best Actor for that film.  He won Best Actor in my book.)  The Dark Tower films would be epic and they would blow LOTR out of the water.  Let casting for Roland begin....
