Full press release: The Dark Tower coming to theaters...and TV (stephenking.com)


    Universal Pictures and NBC Universal Television Entertainment have acquired the rights to produce three films and a television series based on the seven epic novels, short stories and comic books from Stephen King’s The Dark Tower.


    [Ron] Howard, [Brian] Grazer and [Akiva] Goldsman are planning for the first film in the trilogy to be immediately followed by a television series that will bridge the second film. After the second film, the television series will pick up allowing viewers to explore the adventures of the protagonist as a young man as a bridge to the third film and beyond.


Howard's involvement and the structure of the franchise have been rumored for a while, after J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof dropped out. But this is the first official announcement of anything. Don't know how well that structure will work in practice. For better or worse, it's coming.

As long as they get Tara from True Blood to play Susannah then I'll be all for this.



Am I in Horseville? Because I'm hearing nothing but naysayers!

And what about Odetta and 'Detta and Mia? One of many examples why this is a terrible idea (the movies, not the casting).

Halfway into the fourth book I starting thinking that King was purposely including so many characters and fantastical ideas so that no matter how poor or crazy he got, adapting the series into a movie or TV series would be completely unrealistic. FAIL.

I have probably read The Gunsligner 10 times, Drawing of the Three about 5 and Waste Lands once. Never got around to reading the rest.

You missed out on the best one in the series then. Book 4, Wizard and Glass, is the one set in Roland's youth. It's also where the Dark Tower comics started from, which has been some excellent stuff all around.





Lloyd: When I met Mary, I got that old fashioned romantic feeling, where I'd do anything to bone her.
Harry: That's a special feeling.

I take it you've never seen this? Christopher Lee earns his 'dork cred' not just from LOTR, Starwars, and Dracula. His work on many Hammer Films where he played, not only Dracula, but Sherlock Holmes and Rasputin.
