Next to LOTR, Stephen King's, 'The Dark Tower,' is one of my favorite all time epics! A mix of LOTR, King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, and Sergio Leone's - A Man With No Name Trilogy of movies this is THE unfilmable series. We are not talking about adapting a mere three books here. This series is comprised of seven books!
How could a movie trilogy do it justice? Or a TV series/mini-series? The answer neither could. Not without major portions of the story being dropped for either financial or time reasons.
But what if a series of movies and TV series were done co-jointly? Unprecedented! But yeah that could work. And that is what is on the drawing board!
