Rumor: The Dark Tower may head to Netflix


Rumor alert people! Nothing is definite as of yet, but keep your eyes and ears open.

There was news a long time ago that director Ron Howard had been working with HBO regarding the Stephen King series, The Dark Tower. That has since fallen through and the project went into limbo. But with Howard having worked on Arrested Development for Netflix, is it possible that his The Dark Tower project may come to life again? had an interview yesterday with Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos and he had this to say:

Arrested Development creator Ron Howard has also been circling Stephen King’s The Dark Tower – any chance Netflix could pick it up?
I spoke to Ron about it, actually. The last time we talked about it the thing was being kicked about HBO – but it’s no longer there. Once Arrested Development gets through we’ll keep talking about it.

Since Netflix has been upping its game recently with House of Cards back in February and Arrested Development later this month, it is not surprising that they could potentially take on another series as well.
