Brian Grazer: Reduced budget means The Dark Tower will get made

Back in July Universal Pictures pulled the plug on Ron Howard’s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, but producer Brian Grazer recently revealed that together with screenwriter Akiva Goldsman and director Ron Howard, they’ve found a way to trim $45-50M from the original $140M budget and that means the film will “get made” [via The Playlist | indieWIRE]:

“We found a way to cut out $45 million out of the budget without changing the scope and actually giving it a good ending,” Grazer said, suggesting a heavily re-worked approach. “In the $140 million draft, the ending wasn’t quite as satisfying. Now, we’ve got $45 million, $50 million out of the way and a really satisfying ending. It’s gonna get made.”
