Despite Universal pulling the plug last month on Ron Howard and Brian Grazer’s ambitious adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, the New York Post is reporting that the project still has some life in it.  Grazer states that Howard hasn’t given up on the unique concept that would have included three feature films and at least two spin-off TV series.  According to Grazer, Howard is currently “trying to get outside financing to make it, and distribute it through a major [studio].”  He also says that Javier Bardem is still attached to play the lead role of gunslinger Roland Deschain,…
