The Dark Tower Movie Now Slated for Summer 2017 Release

3 November 2016 7:59 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Moviegoers will have to wait a little longer to travel to Mid-World. Originally set to come out in February, The Dark Tower movie adaptation of Stephen King's epic book series is now slated to come out in summer of 2017, according to EW.

EW reports that the delay is due to Sony Pictures and Mrc needing more time for visual effects in the post-production process, as well as creating more calendar space to get the word out about the movie. A new release date is not yet known, but we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated on future details.

Directed by Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair), The Dark Tower stars Idris Elba as The Gunslinger, Matthew McConaughey as The Man in Black, Tom Taylor as Jake Chambers, Fran Kranz as Pimli, Katheryn Winnick, and Jackie Earle Haley as Sayre.

Additionally, The Dark Tower TV series has long been in the works, »

The Dark Tower movie pushed back to summer 2017

3 November 2016 6:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fans of Stephen King’s fantasy epic are going to have to wait a little longer to see The Dark Tower on the big screen, as Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the film is being pushed back from its original release date of February 17th to the summer of 2017.

According to the site, Sony Pictures and production company Mrc had set an overly ambitious timeframe for post-production, and need more time to complete the visual effects, as well as marketing the movie. This makes sense, seeing as we’ve seen very little in the way of promotional material so far, save for some official images, and a leaked trailer which featured temporary and incomplete VFX.

The Dark Tower is being produced on a relatively modest budget of just $60 million, and Sony was faced with the choice of spending millions more to speed up post-production, or push back the release. A new date is expected soon. »

The Dark Tower trailer accidentally just got released online

10 October 2016 8:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Someone just lost their job.

One of Sony’s biggest films next year is an adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower – which is a fantasy, science fiction, western, horror series of books. Yeah, that’s a lot of sub-genres. It’s called hedging your bets.

And if the mixture of genres wasn’t enough, the film also has Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey in as the leads. It’s set to be released in February 17th next year, but we haven’t seen a trailer yet…until the Taiwanese division of Sony Pictures accidentally just made one live on YouTube. It probably won’t last long…

Led by “Midnight Sun,” one of the most anticipated shows in Europe, Studiocanal is bringing four new TV series onto the market at Mipcom, its biggest TV sales slate ever.

Also on Studiocanal’s slate: the procedural “Paranoid,” from Nicola Shindler’s Manchester-based Red Production Company, producer of Harlan Coben’s “The Five,” which launched last week on ITV1 to above-average ratings; and “Crazyhead,” from “Misfits” creator Howard Overman, described as a “Buffy”-style demon slayer horror comedy, from London’s Urban Myth Films.

The Dark Tower TV series announced, will adapt Wizard and Glass

21 September 2016 12:51 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coinciding with Stephen King’s 69th birthday today, Sony and Media Rights Capital – the production company behind the upcoming movie – have announced that the companion TV series to The Dark Tower is officially a go.

EW is reporting that Sony and Mrc have committed to financing a run of between 10 and 13 episodes for the series, which will delve into the backstory of Roland the Gunslinger, using the saga’s fourth book, Wizard and Glass, as its source.

Idris Elba will be reprising his role as Roland from the movie, as will Tom Taylor, who plays Jake Chambers, and will appear as part of a framing device bookending the central story about a younger Roland. The Man in Black will also appear, although they are yet to secure Matthew McConaughey, and another actor may potentially portray the character.

[Tiff Review] In the Blood

11 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If forty’s the new thirty, twenty-three can easily become the new thirteen. I think first-time director Rasmus Heisterberg would agree as the man behind screenplays for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Swedish) and A Royal Affair delves into a med student’s coming-of-age drama in In the Blood. What’s often reserved for younger children moving towards adolescence, eighteen at the oldest shifting from high school to college, the genre truthfully fits any period in one’s life if his/her maturity hasn’t quite sunk in. I know a few forty-year olds who could do with a bit of growing up — some people simply haven’t had to leave that alcohol-drenched bachelor pad lifestyle behind. When success comes easy like with Simon (Kristoffer Bech), responsibility can often be pushed aside until too late.

This is practically the young man’s mantra and actually one of the first »

Ron Howard on bringing Stephen King’s The Dark Tower to the screen

6 September 2016 3:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After spending years developing the project, producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer are now less than half a year away from realising their dream of bringing Stephen King’s The Dark Tower to the big screen. However, as we’ve seen and heard, director Nikolaj Arcel’s film is not going to be a direct adaptation of King’s fantasy epic, but rather a sequel of sorts, and Howard has been speaking to Deadline about how they have went about crafting their take on the source material.

“We started talking about what it could be,” states Howard. “I read all the novels and we broke them down. He [Akiva Goldsman] presented this idea to Stephen King, and this is insider material you might not get, but it was about introducing the Horn of Eld into the very first story. He knew it would allow us to use elements of the novels in »

The Light Between Oceans – Review

1 September 2016 8:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The lushly beautiful The Light Between Oceans is a three-hankie historic drama set on the coast of Western Australia. With heart-tugging performances by an attractive trio of Oscar nominees (with two winners), Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander and Rachel Weisz, the film is an adaptation of M. I. Stedman’s 2012 bestseller of the same name. The tale set in a remote corner of the world, in the years after the devastation of World War I, which nearly wiped out a generation of young men in Europe and left those who survived scarred by this most brutal of wars.

Derek Cianfrance, whose previous films include Blue Valentine and The Place Beyond The Pines, both wrote the script and directs, and it is hard to imagine a more perfect director for this moody historic tale of moral choice. The title refers to the story’s setting, a remote lighthouse in Western Australia, at »

Why Derek Cianfrance Sees ‘The Light Between Oceans’ as a Companion Piece to His ‘Blue Valentine’

30 August 2016 11:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Derek Cianfrance knows a thing or two about heartbreak. The “Blue Valentine” and “The Place Beyond the Pines” helmer is best known for making gut-punch features that turn electric love stories into elegies (and sometimes even eulogies) on the meaning of commitment and family, so it’s no surprise that his latest feature — distributed by Walt Disney and their DreamWorks, and thus his first real studio film — explores those same themes, albeit on a much bigger scale.

For his first film since 2012’s “Pines,” Cianfrance has taken on M.L. Stedman’s best-selling novel “The Light Between Oceans,” a tearjerker that rarely lets up on an emotionally wrenching story. Cianfrance adapted the novel himself, which follows a Wwi vet (played by Michael Fassbender) as he attempts to find some much-deserved peace and quiet when he takes a job tending a lone lighthouse on a secluded island off the coast of Australia. »

‘The Dark Tower’ Star Shares Evocative New Look at Stephen King Adaptation

“Traveller, beyond lies Mid-World.” If you’re already familiar with Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower,” there’s a good chance these words will have you even more excited for next year’s film adaptation of the endlessly prolific author’s eight-book series than you already are. Tom Taylor, the young actor who plays Jake, tweeted out a new image from the film accompanied by that line.

The Dark Tower: Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey on the movie

14 July 2016 12:15 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

John Saavedra Jul 15, 2016

The stars of The Dark Tower, Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, talk about Roland and the Man in Black.

The Dark Tower movie, based on Stephen King's series of fantasy/horror novels, has been filming in South Africa and New York City for the past few weeks. The series, once thought to be impossible to adapt, will be ushered onto the big screen by director Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair), stars Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, and King himself. To say that this long-gestating adaptation is under a lot of fan scrutiny is an understatement.

Elba and McConaughey took some time off from shooting to talk to EW about their characters and what to expect from the film. As was already confirmed by King and Arcel before shooting even began, the movie will remix the events of the books and begin in media res.
