Developmental Hell is when a film is in the development stage and is not moving onto the production phase. Most films that are stuck in this state are never officially canceled but work on them slows down. Some movies are stuck in developmental hell for years but manage to pull themselves out. Notable examples include E.T and Dallas Buyers Club. Both films were eventually made and released to critical and commercial success. However, other times films will be trapped in the eternal developmental hell with no chance of getting out. There are many reasons for a film to be in stuck in developmental hell, such as, a change in executives at a studio or a differing perspective of the material. Often, a novel or comic book will do exceptionally well, so a studio will go out and purchase it. However, often the interpretations are different and cause a delay in pre-production moving forward. Sometimes rumors will circulate and fan speculation will create buzz for an upcoming film, but then years pass by with no progression. Other times, studios will announce a new project but it quietly fizzles away. Ever wonder what happened to those movies? Well, they’re stuck and dammed to an eternal developmental hell.

The Dark Tower is an epic written by Stephen King. The series is considered one of his finest works. The series includes eight novels released between 1982 and 2012. It follows the story of a gunslinger named Roland Deschain, his search for the Dark Tower and his battles with The Man In Black. In 2010, it was announced that the series would be adapted into a trilogy of films and two seasons of a TV series, which would air on HBO. Javier Bardem was rumored to star in the series before it went to Russell Crowe. In 2011, the project was canceled but then Warner Bros expressed interest in making the first film and the series still. However, they eventually passed on the project as well. Both Stephen King and Ron Howard are confident the series will still be made.
