Dark Tower Series: Ron Howard in the directors chair

Deadline states:

The plan is to start with the feature film, and then create a bridge to the second feature with a season of TV episodes That means the feature cast—and the big star who’ll play [lead character] Roland Deschain—also has to appear in the TV series before returning to the second film. After that sequel is done, the TV series picks up again, this time focusing on Deschain as a young gunslinger. Those storylines will be informed by a prequel comic book series that King was heavily involved in plotting. The third film would pick up the mature Deshain as he completes his journey. They will benefit from being able to use the same sets cast and crew for the movie and TV, which could help contain costs on what will be a financially ambitious undertaking. Akiva Goldsman is charged with the monumental task of scripting all of this said: “We will certainly be looking to maximize both creative and fiscal opportunities by creating one enterprise that encompasses TV and movies. Some of the shooting will likely encompass both platforms, and that has never been done before. It’s thrilling, we feel like kids in a candy story.”
