Stephen King 'Not Really Surprised' About 'Dark Tower' Roadblock

Ew says:

With the news that Universal has canceled its planned film-and-TV adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower book series, the author tells that he’s still optimistic that director Ron Howard will find a home for Roland the Gunslinger on the big (and/or small) screen. “I’m sorry Universal passed, but not really surprised,” he writes in an email. “As a rule, they’ve been about smaller and less risky pix; maybe they feel it would be better to stick with those fast and furious racing boys. I bear them no ill will, and trust Ron Howard to get Roland and his friends before the camera somewhere else. He’s very committed to the project.”

Just because he's not surprised doesn't make this any less crappy. I like his optimism though. It at least gives me a some hope though Ronnie Howard has since moved on to new projects an with Frank Darabont so deep in The Walking Dead it's not like he can take over.

I'm no so sure I can think of anyone else I could see taking this on as a full time multi-year project outside of those 2 guys.
