The Dark Tower (movies?)

Postby shipwreck » Fri Apr 15, 2011 9:45 am

Okay, so long story short I am a deprived reader and never got around to The Dark Tower series until last year when I read The Gunslinger. Awesome. I'm almost done with The Drawing of the Three and mean to immediately start The Waste Lands thereafter. All of that is to say, DON'T SPOIL ANYTHING!

Ahem...

So, to the point, there has been a lot of talk about making this novel series into a string of films and maybe even a TV series. Bad Robot (J.J. Abrams company) bought the rights as I'm sure many of you know, but relinquished them as LOST had taken a lot out of the team and they didn't want to screw up a film adaptation of their favorite books. So Ron Howard bought the rights and has announced the first movie to come out in two years. At this point the only real news is that Javier Bardem will most likely play Roland.

What do you all make of that? Do you want to see a Dark Tower film or films? Can it be done?

I'll post some linkies later after I dug up the reliable sources.
