"Universal Cancels Dark Tower Project"Universal Studios have officially cancelled Ron Howard’s ambitious adaptation ‘Dark Tower’, a fantasy series by Stephen King.

Universal Pictures, who took up the Stephen King’s ‘Dark Tower’ for development has now officially cancelled the projected, which was believed to be made into three movie and two seasons of TV series.

Ron Howard was expected to perform dual roles as the producer and the director for the movie. Akiva Goldsman, the Oscar winning screenwriter was also attached to the project, as one of the producers.

As per the reports, Universal has declined to develop the project, as it looked, too much costly and too risky, which they did not feel comfortable to move forward with the project. However, the studios denied talking on the decision to cancel the project.

Javier Bardem was supposed to play the lead role in the three movies, where he will play the role of Roland Deshain, a gunslinger, who is on a journey to find the dark tower, which is said to believe to be a magical portal to the other worlds. Javier was also interested in doing the TV series of the project.

Besides the ambitious project, Ron Howard is planning to make another racing drama movie ‘Rush’, with Chris Hemsworth as the lead role, based on the rivalry of Austrian F1 racer, Niki Lauda and James Hunt.

The movie ‘Rush’ is expected to hit the theaters in the year 2013.
