The high-profile project from Ron Howard is turned down by Warners after previously being dropped by Universal Pictures.
Warners is in talks with director Ron Howard to bring the prestigious novel-adapted movie project back in the saddle after it was canceled by Universal Pictures back in July 2011.
Words are, Gore Verbinski tries to press the budget of the Johnny Depp-starring film, while Ron Howard tries to find another studio to develop the movie adaptation of Stephen King's novel.
Rumor has it, Universal Pictures won't be going forward with the adaptation of Stephen King's seven novel series because the studio deems the project too costly and risky.
The collaborative project between Universal, Imagine and NBC reportedly is facing a major bump after budgetary issues became a problem.
Words are, Bardem has officially nailed a lead role of Roland Deschain in the Ron Howard-directed movie.
The 'Eat, Pray, Love' actor is reportedly in final discussions to play gunslinger Roland Deschain in the forthcoming sci-fi movie.
Words that the Spanish actor has been offered the role of Roland Deschain come out shortly after Christian Bale was rumored rising as a frontrunner for the male lead.
Bardem is said to be the top choice to portray Roland Deshain, up against the 'LOTR' star who has been linked to the role earlier.
Other actors mentioned as the possible lead actor in the movie adaptation of Stephen King's novels are Jon Hamm and Viggo Mortensen.
The fourth 'Bourne' movie and the horror sci-fi are plotted as the studio's summer releases in 2012 and 2013 respectively.
Additionally, the novels will also be made into TV series with Akiva Goldsman set to direct the first film and the first season of the TV show.
