I was very, very skeptical when Akiva Goldsman, Brian Grazer and Ron Howard announced that they would be taking over the reigns as the latest troop attempting to bring Stephen King's mammoth dark fantasy series The Dark Tower to the big screen. I love the series so much that I'd have been skeptical no matter who was attached to the project, but there was just something about their collective careers that does not scream epic fantasy to me. Today's news has completely changed my opinion of them, however.

I can't imagine how hard it was to convince a studio as big as Universal to make the sprawling, multi-year commitment they've just signed up for. There's really no industry precedent for the scale of what they're about to attempt. And I wouldn't have it any other way when it comes to The Dark Tower.
