Ron Howard Talks ‘The Dark Tower’ on Howard Stern

Listening to Howard Stern yesterday morning, Ron Howard (an absolutely fantastic interview) revealed his plans for his The Dark Tower, the film and TV series adaptations based on Stephen King’s novels. First and foremost, he clarified everything was still in development, meaning things could still fall apart. In between the first two movies, Howard states he plans a six-hour miniseries bridging the gap. Lastly, he confirmed that Viggo Mortensen (The Lord of the Rings) and Javier Bardem (No Country For Old Men) are the current frontrunners for the role of Roland Deschain. For a project in development, things appear to be progressing at a rapid pace. May 2013 is still a ways out…
