‘A Royal Affair’ Helmer Nikolaj Arcel To Direct ‘The Dark Tower’

Keeping up the myriad twists and turns in the development of the brewing mega-franchise of Stephen King's epic "The Dark Tower" series could probably fill a small novella already, but basically, producers Brian Grazer and Ron Howard have refused to say quit. They've been pushing this boulder uphill for years now seeing the project collapse at Universal and Warner Bros.

The plan is still to bring this out as a multi-film series that will be complemented with a TV show.
