"Thank You for playing.
Gunslingers, it is time for our Palaver."
"We used to play cards up in the tower
but now the suits lay scattered"
I had a thought today. It would make sense to introduce Jake now, and have the character go through a modified version of what happens to him in Gunslinger. Then move on to movie 2 with Susannah and Eddie, and loop back to him in movie 3 as an older version of Jake (because the actor is going to age), or even a new actor at the same age as a Jake from another Level of the Tower (other worlds than these). That would make more sense to get all the Gunslinger and Wastelands Jake out of the way before getting to Eddie and Susannah.
It has updated again.
Anyone else keeping up with this site?
It was an interesting weekend. The site added a dozen new links and changed from Sombra to Blaine on the homepage.
I answered riddles and got email from Blaine.
I wonder if its an "official" site, or a fan site?
I think that's a pretty damn good concept actually.

Not sure I'm feeling the logo yet but it's most likely not final:
To me, it looks like the font style a metal/heavy metal band might use for their name.
That aside? I am happy to see that some practical effects will be utilized. A pure CGI-fest wouldn't sit quite right with me.

Gotta admit, I'm not too sure about this "starting in the middle" scenario. And The Wastelands seems to be the worst place to start. A lot of the book is about Jake's death paradox, and that won't make much sense to anyone who hasn't read the 1st and 2nd books.
There's also all this talk about having much of the movie take place in the "our world." No offense to good old earth, but isn't Roland's world far more interesting, especially for a movie?
And then having such a high profile actor like MM in the role of the MiB - who really doesn't even show up that much in the books - especially book 2 and 3. That seems odd, but I'm guessing they will increase his role - they pretty much have to unless they're going for a Mark Hamill/TFA type appearance at the end.
I don't know why they're avoiding starting at the beginning, with book 1, continuing on to book 2. They're could be some potentially great scenes with Tull, The Oracle, the final palaver, the beach scenes, Eddie's shootout, Detta, etc. And you could probably get most of books 1 and 2 into one movie. Starting in the middle seems like they're missing out on too much that made the series great.
Oh hi btw, first post.
I think not starting this adaptation with book 1 is a big mistake.
The more I read about this production, the less I like it.
Wonder if King is regretting turning down Darabont yet...
