Rothman and Wiczyk deny that they had an issue with each other or with Arcel's work, and Wiczyk noted that the project was shot on time and on budget.

MRC had "kill rights" on the marketing to the final cut.

Below, learn about some The Dark Tower behind the scenes troubles.

After delivering a rough cut of the film to Sony Pictures boss Tom Rothman and Media Rights Capital co-founder Modi Wickzyk, who co-financed the picture with Sony, the two weren't necessarily aren't all that pleased and brought the idea of "bringing in a more experienced filmmaker" to the table. If either Sony or MRC didn't like a cut of the film, it got scrapped.

That means Sony made a movie that MRC and author King both had veto power over.

Covered California 2018 rates to increase by 12.5%

Arcel says that he was involved in writing the pilot and planning the basic arc of the first season, and he says it's "very closely adhering to Wizard And Glass" and parts of The Gunslinger, right down to direct quotes and characters being portrayed "exactly as they are" in the books.

Last October, there were three test screenings of the $66 million fantasy film. "But I felt supported throughout, and they all looked to me for answers".

Gunslinger Roland Deschain, played by actor Idris Elba, battles his nemesis, the Man in Black, who is determined to destroy the Dark Tower, which holds their universe together. "If someone had jumped into my editing room and taken over, I would have left instantly". We've heard these reshoots were a little more extensive than that, with the ending undergoing some tinkering as well.

"Alright, see you in the next one, Sam", McConaughey concluded, pointing upwards before walking away to try to gather his thoughts again. Whileit's not ranked one of King's scariest books on Goodreads, those who are wondering if The Dark Tower movie is scary should be forewarned that it's definitely sinister. After seeing The Dark Tower, he told Arcel "You have remembered the faces of your fathers", quoting a phrase from the source material.
