"The Dark Tower" Is Still On Hold

Nothing had been heard about the ambitious film and TV adaptation of Stephen King's epic fantasy novel series "The Dark Tower" for some time.

Then, a few weeks ago, former "Breaking Bad" actor Aaron Paul let slip he'd had a sit down with Ron Howard and the possibility of Paul starring in a role came up.

Sadly, despite that, the film remains in limbo for now. Writer/producer Akiva Goldsman, currently out doing promotion for his new directorial effort "Winter's Tale," tells Collider:

"It's not officially back on and we will never let it go – until Stephen takes it away from us. [Laughs]"

Asked if the filmmakers are currently making casting decisions, Goldsman says: "No, but I love reading about it."
