    Stephen King's The Dark Tower [Amazon TV Series]

    Amazon have picked up The Dark Tower TV series. A far more fitting format for a long book series with a shit load of lore than a 90min film.

    Fingers crossed it's better than that below average movie. Elba and McConaughey deserved better than that.

    Like I said since they first began toying with an adaptation years ago, all they need to do to make a really good season of tv is to do a faithful adaptation of The Gunslinger (the first novel). Make it a weird, gritty fantasy western. If they announce that then I will be on board. If they **** around with the story more then I'll know I can safely ignore it.

    This. If that works then they'll have earned the right to try and adapt the weirder stuff that comes later.

    Holy shit this might not be dead after all. No word if Idris Elba is still attached. He was supposed to do the series after the movie.

    Amazon Studios is set to move ahead with production on their adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower books. The series, which will be comprised of 13 one-hour episodes, will be executive produced by a team of huge names led by Glen Mazzara (The Walking Dead), Akiva Goldsman (Titans, Star Trek: Discovery) and King.

    Amazon Studios has begun looking to assemble a cast ahead of a mid-April start of production in Croatia, where the series is expected to film until late-June. It appears that part of the delay may have been, in part, due to efforts to distance the series from the 2017 film adaptation which was received poorly by fans and critics. The series will of course focus on Roland Deschain, a young boy from a long line of “gunslingers”, and his “ka-tet” comprised of Cuthbert Allgood, Alain Johns, Ileen Ritter and Jamie De Curry in addition to his girlfriend, Susan Delgado. The studio is currently looking at actors and actresses, ages 16-18 for all the roles listed above.

    Marten Broadcloak will serve as the series antagonist and his affair with Roland’s mother, Gabrielle, will factor heavily into the plot. Her affair incites Roland to pick up his guns in a search for Broadcloak and sets his father, Steven, on a mission to find him. At this time, no offers have been made to talent, but the cast should begin to assemble quickly.
