Fans of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower books were already skeptical when it was first announced that producers Ron Howard, Brian Grazer and Akiva Goldsman were working on a film/TV adaptation of the series. Not only is it incredibly ambitious to pursue filming such an epic story as The Dark Tower (let alone a trilogy along with a limited-run TV series to bridge the films together), but Howard, Grazer and Goldsman just seemed like an odd choice to helm the project in the first place. But when news broke that the project was delayed because of Universal’s desire to reduce the budget, requiring Goldsman to do script rewrites in order to accommodate the constraints, fans everywhere wondered if this already ambitious project would be severely hurt by all of it.

In a recent interview with Deadline, Howard and Grazer actually touched upon some of these issues, hoping to set the minds of fans at ease. Hit the jump for direct quotes addressing the budget constraints, delays, rewrites, and if the delays will impact actor Javier Bardem‘s role as the lead character of Roland Deschain in the project.

You can watch it after the jump!
