What’s going on with The Dark Tower? There are problems with the script, the budget is out of whack, and the production has been delayed. Director Ron Howard has finally opened up about the film’s recent troubles—including Javier Bardem’s (sort-of) casting.
In a recent interview, Howard revealed that yes, production on The Dark Tower has been pushed back, but they’ve got a new start date! Instead of fall 2011, they’re looking to get things going early next spring.
Howard said, “We had to pull back to our September start date due to budget delays and ongoing story development and logistical issues, but Dark Tower is moving forward.” That’s great from a production standpoint, but what about the cast?
