Looks like a huge Dark Tower deal is in the works including 3 feature films with interspersed TV series seasons.
Universal Lands Stephen King’s ‘The Dark Tower’ And Plans Unprecedented Feature/Network TV Adaptation – Deadline.com
I see so many problems with this it's not funny. But, I'm interested to see the result.
-The first book is way more brutal and seriously different in feel than the rest of them.
-Clint Eastwood is too old to play Roland.
-So much of the series is mental or internal, how is that going to show up?
-This better not end up like Legend of the Seeker where instead of killing like five guys the whole book they end up slaughtering an army every episode
-How is Jake going to stay 13 for the entire impossibly long production? There's no way they're filming the entire thing in less than three years.
-There's a LOT of intense language, violence, and sex that brings a lot to the setting. I'd hate to lose it.
-How the fuck are they doing this again? How much are they cutting out?
I will say, if it's well-done, I can't wait to see the Wizard and Glass movie, although it won't hold a candle to the book.
