The long-gestured adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower is showing signs of life.
Sony Pictures is feeling so confident they went as far as to date the feature for January 13, 2017, which means production could commence anytime in the next year.
Last month the studio committed to A Royal Affair director Nikolaj Arcel to get behind the camera.
Arcel has brought on Anders Thomas Jensen to rewrite the script, which was most recently put together by Akiva Goldsman and Jeff Pinkner.
The Dark Tower will be the first in a franchise, with a TV series planned alongside several films.
