Deadline reports that Universal has officially put the breaks on the Ron Howard-directed Stephen King adaptation, and pushed the planned start date for the project into February. Universal will work with Howard and Akiva Goldsman on reducing the budget, but they have to make a decision on greenlighting Tower by July; that's when the rights revert back to King. [Deadline]
