The wait for a film adaptation of Stephen King’s fantasy classics has been long. Today, news of a delay means that the wait will be longer, but only by a few months.

Entertainment Weekly reports that The Dark Tower movie will be shifting from a February 17 debut to an non-specific summer release window. The film’s principal photography was completed as of this past July but it’s going to need more time for post-production. Hopefully, the decision not to rush it out for early next year means audiences get a more satisfying look at the Gunslinger and his world.

Update: The Dark Tower will be released July 28, 2017. As a result, Sony moved their Jumanji remake from that date to December 22, 2017.
