Well, maybe it’s not official, but Brian Grazer said during an interview with MTV News that the TV portion of Imagine Entertainment’s adaptation of The Dark Tower will air on HBO. “We’ll do the TV with HBO and the movie with … to be determined,” Grazer said during an interview to promote Tower Heist. That would cover the two limited-run TV series that would be done alongside a film trilogy to tell Stephen King’s epic story, which was originally set up at Universal before the studio passed because of cost concerns. (Grazer’s Imagine partner Ron Howard was set to direct and Akiva Goldsman was writing.) Grazer also told MTV that Javier Bardem looks good to remain as the lead, gunslinger Roland Deschain, and that $45 million has been cut from the film budget. But don’t set your DVR just yet: While a potential Time Warner tie-up — HBO and, say, Warner Bros — makes sense for the ambitious project, we’ve learned that while the series have been pitched to HBO, there is no deal. We also hear that there has been no decision made about where a potential Dark Tower series would land or whether it would get made it all.
