A few years back, it was announced that Hollywood director Ron Howard was looking to adapt the Stephen King novel The Dark Tower for the big screen. Since then, there has been plenty of discussion about how he could adapt the novel but with little progress to talk of. Now, Ron has admitted that he is still working on The Dark Tower project, although he does not want to talk about the progress of it.

Howard was chatting to Empire, when he told them, "The Dark Tower is something that we're still working on. We've all taken a vow of silence about the progress, the headway, what we think our timetable is, because I don't think I realised how much media interest there was in the title and how much excitement there was. It's a fascinating, powerful possibility and even Stephen King acknowledges it's a tricky adaptation, but to be honest, from a financing side, it's not a straightforward, four-quadrant, sunny Superhero story - it's dark, it's horror."
 
He added, "That edge is what appeals to me, the complexities of those characters is what appeals to all of us. And I think Stephen King really respects that, with Akiva Goldsman and myself, that that's what we love about it, and that's what we want to try to get to the screen. So my answer is: it got delayed, it's never gone away. We're working on it, and Stephen is very patient with us, and Akiva's just gone off and directed [Winter's Tale], I'm continuing to work, but the Dark Tower dreams - fever dreams, rather - are still there, but we're not going to give it a timetable."

While we wait for Ron Howard to bring us The Dark Tower, whether it be as a big screen franchise or as a television series, which has been mentioned in the past, we still have some of his other projects to look forward to. The Ron Howard movie Rush is out now in the UK. It will open on limited release in the US on September 20, before then hitting the big screen nationwide on September 27. Check out the Rush trailer below.
