The story to bridge the films
Howard Stern listeners and fans of Stephen King tuned in to Stern’s program yesterday to hear Ron Howard talk about his latest film as well as his intentions for the sprawling adaptation of “The Dark Tower” series.
Some of the usual things that we’ve heard before were said, however, Howard shed some more light on the television series that would bridge the films in the big screen trilogy.
Howard revealed the TV project would likely be a six-hour mini-series, and because this whole adaptation endeavor is being spearheaded for Universal, you can expect to see it debut on NBC another one of Universal’s affiliate channels.
He also reminded listeners that his frontrunners for the character of Roland are presently Viggo Mortensen and Javier Bardem.
