Deaedline announced yesterday that Amazon Studios has passed on the pilot for Stephen King's The Dark Tower. All hope is not lost, however, as the original scripts are still being shopped around.

"Amazon executives felt like the pilot was not on the level of other large-scope elevated genre series the streamer has in production/pre-production like Wheel Of Time and The Lord Of the Ring," Deadline stated.

It's well known that the 2017 Sony adaptation starring Matthew McConughey and Idris Elba wasn't particularly well received by fans, and now they will have to wait even longer to see if the epic saga can be better adapted to a television series.
