The Dark Tower: new director found, project back on

2 June 2015 10:39 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Nikolaj Arcel is the man set to bring Stephen King's The Dark Tower to the screen...

It looks as if the hugely ambitious screen adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower is finally back on.

Once upon a time, Ron Howard was to direct the first film, with the plan being for a television series to run in tandem with the movies. The size of the gamble eventually put Universal and Warner Bros off backing the project, but now Sony Pictures is firmly behind The Dark Tower. It's co-financing with Media Rights Capital, and the plan remains for a series of movies, as well as the TV show.

The TV show is being developed by Akiva Goldsman, Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Erica Huggins. But now we learn that Howard definitely won't be directing the first The Dark Tower film (although it's looked that way for some time, »

Nikolaj Arcel in talks to direct The Dark Tower

2 June 2015 1:26 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in April it was announced that the long-gestating adaptation of Stephen King’s epic fantasy series The Dark Tower from Ron Howard, Akiva Goldsman and Brian Grazer had been resurrected by Sony and Media Rights Capital, and now it looks like a director may have been found.

According to Deadline, Nikolaj Arcel is in talks to rewrite and direct the first in what is hoped to be a series of movies. Arcel previously co-wrote the screenplay for the original verison of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, as well as directing the acclaimed A Royal Affair.

The site reports that Sony has “a lean mean script that is primarily based on the first book in the series, The Gunslinger, establishing the relationship between Roland and young protege Jake Chambers.” It has been written by Goldsman, along with Jeff Pinkner (The Amazing Spider-Man 2).

The Dark Tower Calls To Nikolaj Arcel

2 June 2015 1:25 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Nikolaj Arcel, director of foreign stand-out film A Royal Affair, is very close to signing on to direct and rewrite the script for Sony's adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower.  If Arcel does board the project, perhaps he'll cast his Royal Affair stars Mads Mikkelsen and and Ex Machina’s Alicia Vikander?  It's also likely that Arcel will rewrite the latest draft of the script which was last completed by Jeff Pinkner and Akiva Goldsman.  Though Arcel's arrival would mean Ron Howard's departure, Sony is still moving forward with the latter's plan to tell the complete novel eries through both multiple films and a TV series.   We'll have more details as the story develops. Maybe we'll finally get some official casting news and a release date for the long gestating project? »

'A Royal Affair' Director Nikolaj Arcel Next to Take on 'The Dark Tower'

2 June 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Another interesting update on the long-gestating adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower, and this time it might be some good news. Deadline is reporting that Danish director Nikolaj Arcel (of A Royal Affair, Truth About Men, Island of Lost Souls) is the latest to be handed the reigns to The Dark Tower adaptation, now in the works at Sony Pictures with funding from Media Rights Capital. Their intention is to turn the book series into a franchise of movies, of course, with a linked TV show in a similar fashion to the version Ron Howard was working on a few years ago. Arcel is a huge fan of The Dark Tower and knows the series well, apparently teaching himself English so he could read King's books. But will it actually happen? For years and years we followed development on The Dark Tower projects at Universal, where Ron Howard »

The first big screen adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower book series has been in the works for quite some time, and now the folks at Sony Pictures Entertainment and Media Rights Capital are reportedly eyeing their top choice for the director's chair.

The Dark Tower Aiming to Get A Royal Affair Director Nikolaj Arcel

2 June 2015 9:24 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower is inching forward. Back in April, Sony Pictures resurrected the plans for the franchise, and teamed up with Mrc to co-finance the ambitious project, which will include movies and a complimentary TV series. As we previously reported, Ron Howard, who was long attached to the adaptation, decided to drop out, and now Deadline is reporting that The Dark Tower is looking to hire A Royal Affair director Nikolaj Arcel for the gig. Per Deadline, “taught himself to speak and read English in order to consume Stephen King’s books in the writer’s native tongue. Arcel is a huge fan of The Dark Tower and knows the series well. That impressed the studio, and he showed with the [Swedish version] Dragon Tattoo that he could go dark, which is important in this series, a mix of horror and fantasy.” [caption id="attachment_208858" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Nordisk Film Distribution[/caption] »
