It was looking like the first movie in The Dark Tower series was going to begin filming later this summer, but reports surfaced last week of Universal being concerned over the budget for the planned trilogy of films and TV series. Deadline is now reporting that filming has been delayed until February in an attempt to cut down on the overall budget.

They also note that Universal has to greenlight the film by July or the rights are released back to Stephen King and Ron Howard. As we said last week, it is possible that the Universal could team up with another studio for the project or that Ron Howard will take The Dark Tower series to another studio altogether. Either way, we'll have a definite answer about the status of the film in the hands of Universal within the next two months.
