Hey everyone. Capone in Chicago here, with yet another update to yesterday's update on THE DARK TOWER.
A source with verifiable inside info on THE DARK TOWER project sent me these handy tidbits:
Hey, Capone. There are genuine plans for a May 13th, 2013, release theatrical, with T.V. hours to follow. [However,] there is no green light in place yet, as the scripts are not done, which means the budgets are not done, but Universal is giving very strong support. There's also a very ambitious Game component being planned that will further utilize elements from the books. [If everything continues on schedule and the budget is approved], it looks like things are coming together for a late-summer or early-September start. Call me Eddie Dean.
Thanks, Eddie. Let me just wrap my brain around the fact that I'm on the brink of living in a world where feature film versions of THE HOBBIT and THE DARK TOWER will be shooting at the same time. *CRRRAAAACKKKK!!!* And, that was the sound of my brain splitting in two.
I also really love the idea that possible THE DARK TOWER game(s) would factor in more of this fully-loaded mythology and story. My hope for this project is growing like a rose in a vacant lot. What does everyone think?
