Producer, Brian Grazer tells the Playlist that Dark Tower still has a solid chance of being made after a rewrite for the initial pricey ending. “We found a way to cut out $45 million out of the budget without changing the scope and actually giving it a good ending,” Grazer said. “In the $140 million draft, the ending wasn’t quite as satisfying. Now, we’ve got $45 million, $50 million out of the way and a really satisfying ending. It’s gonna get made.” Javier Bardem is reportedly still on board to star.
Dark Tower is still listed on, the release date is followed by a series of question marks?????????? which is pretty hilarious but you might find the Dark Tower message boards interesting!

Update: Oh my! So many changes. Idris Elba starred in The Dark Tower when it was released this summer of 2017 costarring Matthew McConaughey. The film ended up coming in at about $60 million and grossed about $50 million so not a huge hit.
