    Producer Brian Grazer Says $40-50 Million Cut From 'Dark Tower' Budget Means "It's Gonna Get Made"

    Says Revamped Approach Gives The Movie A "Satisfying Ending"EXCLUSIVE: Universal may have turned off the lights on "The Dark Tower," but producer Brian Grazer, screenwriter Akiva Goldsman and director Ron Howard are still hard at work on developing the property. Universal's worry about the Stephen King adaptation stemmed not only from the mammoth cost, but also the unprecedented vision, with a planned three-film cycle coupled with a television series to bridge the events of each picture. Last we heard the search was for outside financing, and then team with a studio to distribute the film. But, if the project is massively downgraded in scope,...

    No, We Don't Understand What's Going On Either The Coen Brothers have always delighted in evading expectations. Enjoy our dark film noir debut "Blood Simple?"

    Ron Howard Rules Out Returning For Third Dan Brown Film 'The Lost Symbol'

    Ron Howard's insanely ambitious "The Dark Tower," a three-film, two-TV series adaptation of Stephen King's epic fantasy series, looks to be pretty much dead: it was delayed in search of budget cuts, before Universal dropped it altogether, and the chances of another studio picking up the slack looks to be slim at this point. But the director, still seen as one of the safest pairs of hands around, hasn't sunk into grief: he's prepping Formula 1 drama "Rush" with Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl, which should shoot at the end of the year, and he's got a number of other projects circling: fantasy actioner "Amnesty," MAD Magazine adaptation "Spy V...
