    I'm torn on this one. I'd love to see a miniseries or maybe 2 or 3 movies, but damn, they could really fuck it up. *crosses fingers* Maybe it will all work out.
    Several movies would be nice. After all, it's working for Harry Potter. Don't know how fans would feel about waiting 3 years for each part to be shown in theatres. At that rate, i'd be 65 years old by the time book 7 comes out on film.

    I get nervous when i think of a tv mini-series. After all, look at Kingdom Hospital or Golden Years. They sucked. Plus just the scope of the story is soooo large it was made for the big screen.

    I'm sure that much of the books would have to be slimed down for a film but i hope that whoever writes it, they'll keep it tight and seamless.

    Well, if it does suck, expect some MST3K action.

    I think he may have been referring to Mystery Science Theatre 3000. I am not sure though.

    LOL Hannah, UOP???

    If you did a miniseries, that would solve the Jake problem. If you do it as a film, you're going to run into the same problem as the Harry Potter flicks - the kids are getting too old to play teenagers.

    I knew it. I'm taking my capstone class now. It's nice to look forward to writing a crappy paper and doing crappy presentations for the last time.

    Oh, we are totally doing that if it sucks. And filming it.

    Oh yeah, the jake problem .. well if they shot all of Jake's scenes within 24 months .. if he was 11 at the start and 13 at the end, with blonde hair & features he should hopefully look like he's aged a little but not a huge amount (which you would want for the later chapters of the story anyway). Boys dont start broadening across and growing upward until 13-14 usually.

    And seriously, is there any way to know how much time passed between say Wastelands and The Dark Tower.

    SK gave the impression they were on the road for years at a few points

    Not to mention the "time being soft" thing.

    I have had my head buried in a wiki. A series of movies would be a great thing for fans and a great thing for us

    I think its just because the movie is in its beginning stages

    I'm curious to see what they come up with.

    Wow I'm actually really excited about this! I really think JJ Abrams can do a good job with this since he is a huge fan of the books.

    Of course it will never ever be as good as the novels, but I'm staying positive about this right now.

    I wonder how "supernatural" he would make Roland seem, in terms of gunslinging. King has said on a couple occasions that he draws with almost super, blazing speed. I wonder if JJ would use special affects for this tiny aspect or if he would just leave it to the actor?

    If they are going to CGI anything, I hope its Roland's draw. That has got to be of amazing speed to make the story work I think.
