BBC News has just released a story that Universal Studios has struck a deal with director J.J. Abrams to produce a new disaster movie for them. Is this an indication that Abrams’ film adaptation of The Dark Tower will be put on the back burner?
Hmm. I guess we should take heart in that the BBC article only indicates that Abrams will produce a new disaster film – there are no other details and certainly no time-frame has been set.
That said, our personal feelings here on darktowermovies.com is that if J.J. Abrams does adapt the Dark Tower movies he will take a similiar approach to what Peter Jackson took when he made the Lord of The Rings trilogy, in that he will make the whole seven book epic in one go. If that is the case then Abrams will probably make this Universal Studios picture first.
