Universal sets date for Dark Tower movie release

 | #Release Date#TV#Universal

Universal Pictures has announced a number of movie release dates and tucked away among films such as Larry Crowne and Safe House they have set the release date of the first movie from the Dark Tower trilogy.  They expect DT to be in theaters on Friday, May 17, 2013.

For a typical movie I would say that’s a fairly safe date but for such a production as The Dark Tower–encompassing a trilogy of movies and a couple of seasons of TV series–I’d say this was a little optimistic. Let’s hope I’m proven wrong!

This Universal list comes from Deadline.com, although there is no confirmation on the accuracy of that information.
