Now, the fate of the project seems sealed. Since Universal has backed out of the deal, it doesn't seem very likely that other studios will be eager to pick up the project. To be honest, the whole thing was so ambitious, it was nothing short of madness. But it was beautiful madness and if they would have been able to pull it off, I'm pretty sure it would have been one for the history books. They could still do this as a TV mini-series, like the 1994 adaptation of "The Stand" which is pretty darn good (read a review here), or something in the lines of an HBO series, since they're known to be risk-takers and they do let filmmakers run free with their ideas. It remains to be seen what the future holds for "The Dark Tower".
