Is The Dark Tower TV Series Scheduled To Film This Summer?

There’s no other way to say this: Last year’s The Dark Tower film adaptation was a disappointment. Critics and fans largely disliked the film, and even if you enjoyed it for what it accomplished in its narrative, there’s no denying that it performed less-than-ideally at the box office, taking in only $111 million off its $60 million budget. It’s not a huge flop (though I wouldn’t argue with anyone calling it a minor flop), by any means, but it’s likely that some money was lost in the process.

This past October, author Stephen King revealed that the long-rumored TV show that would supposedly help fill in the gaps in-between movies would actually be a complete reboot of the novels.

But given how much of a disappointment that first film was, I wasn’t really holding my breath that they’d be willing to pick it up and run with it so soon after the film. If a new report from Omega Underground is to be believed, then I may have been dead-wrong.

According to the outlet, production for the Dark Tower series is set to begin this summer in Ireland and the United Kingdom. Sadly, there are no further details for this series, but it sounds like some real development is underway, and if they do plan on shooting this summer, then we’ll have to hear about some casting or script details in the coming half-year.

Currently, there is no network attached to the series.

Do you think making a TV series of The Dark Tower so soon after the film is a good idea? Let us know your thoughts down below!
