Ron Howard Still Confident in The Dark Tower Going Forward

"We're thinking of starting in early spring [of 2012] now," he told EW. "I can't really say who'll be in it yet, but Javier Bardem has shown a great deal of interest. We'll know by the end of the summer, when our flashing green light goes solid." [EW]
