I'm horrified by this- I just can't see the books translating over into movies well. If by some miracle they actually manage to stay true to the books then goddamn this will be an excellent series of films (and they better not try and cram 2-3 books into 1 film) but I have serious doubts about the chances that will actually happen.

BoK- you have to read the Dark Tower series, it's got the best ending of any series I've ever read. Pisses all over anything BL have ever come out with.

Aren't they doing series also, between films? AFAIK there will be 3 films and 2 seasons of Tv show.

I have doubts how good it will translate to films.

Looks like they've started the search for Roland.

Probably one of my favourite book series, but I'm with Baron Spikey in the 'It-probably-won't-translate-well-into-film" camp. Then again, some of King's books have made brilliant movies.

Cramming 7 books into 3 films and 2 tv seasons?

Awesome series, anything King writes is gold imo, but I don't think it will translate into 1 movie. Or even 3.

ummm... I didn't think Stephen King finished that series, did he?

Have you ever felt so at one with the world, with the universe, with everything that is, that you were overcome with love?

That is reality. That is the truth. What we make of it is up to us.
