J.J. Abrams has just given us the tiniest snippet of an update regarding the Dark Tower movies. This is from a recent Star Trek interview where Abrams was asked the current situation regarding DT. Here’s the transcription;
Damon Lindelof and I talked with Mr King, we got the rights for that as a film. Damon is obviously still on LOST – we’ve been working on Star Trek together – as soon as LOST is done, hopefully we’ll get to begin tackling that.
The full, although somewhat short, Dark Tower Update interview with J.J.Abrams;
I think we can allow ourselves a pinch of excitment here! The final episode of LOST airs in May 2010, and giving time for that to be wrapped up (interviews, etc), there’s a good chance they will be filming The Dark Tower come 2011.
