    I really enjoyed The Night Flier, so I'm glad to see Mark Pavia getting a shot at another King project. Most directors seem to strip away all the intertextual links that connect King's stories, but...

    Quint over at AintItCool.com has posted an editorial in which he suggests an HBO Dark Tower series with Frank Darabont as the showrunner. There's quite a good discussion going on in the comments...

    I was one of the people who voted for Doctor Sleep. While I'm still excited for more Dark Tower, it's only an 'interquel', so we already know that nothing truly important will happen in it (and if it...

    Yeah, remember that time JRR Tolkien wrote a sequel to The Hobbit, a book which was never intended to have a continuation? I think it was called Lord of the something or other? And we all know what a...

    I actually think Tim Burton would be the better choice at this point. He has made some terrific films, and while the same can be said of Ron Howard, Burton's dark and gothic style seems like a much...

    Are you Joel Kinnaman? If not, then why are you copy-pasting that exact question onto so many sites?

    In any case, it's Javier Bardem all the way for me.

    Am I the only one who's kind of hoping that Ron Howard will get side-tracked into directing other projects like this, and someone a bit quirkier and more vibrant (Terry Gilliam, Guillermo del Toro,...

    I think The Waste Lands is the peak of the series, and just about the best thing King's ever written. It's the only book by the author that kept me enthralled from start to finish. I loved the crazy...

    The way I see it, the 'old man' Crimson King who is the biological offspring of Eld is one being, whereas the more abstract, 'true' Crimson King is another, more fundamental entity. Los' and Dis are...

    The Crimson King is the son of Arthur Eld and the Crimson Queen. Since Arthur Eld was born in the post-apocalyptic Mid-World, this means that Los' wasn't around until long after the Old Ones'...

    I'd love to see a fresh adaptation of Needful Things – it was my first King novel, and I've always been fond of it. A remake which does the book justice would be great – it would be amazing if they...

    Right – so King wants his worst books to be adapted by legendary directors and his best books to be adapted by middling directors. Makes perfect sense.

    Seriously, I would kill to get one of the...

    The Hobbit was actually delayed several times over the last few years, and budgetary concerns were the reason it didn't go into production last summer. I've been following its development closely...

    Nothing good can come from a delay? The Hobbit has been delayed numerous times, and it still looks pretty good to me.

    I wouldn't go so far as to say 'there's no movie' – it might not be made for a few years, but considering del Toro's determination, I think we'll see Mountains of Madness eventually. I'd rather the...

    Del Toro seriously knows how to make his money go far – Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy II both look and feel much more expensive than they actually were. If he says he needs a minumum of $150 million to...

    I'm deeply disappointed by this. Not as much as I would be if a talented writer and or/director were in charge (namely Frank Darabont), but this is still pretty crushing. Ron Howard and co have...
