Dark Tower To Roll When LOST Is Finished?
Will we get to see Dark Tower on the big screen? The rights have been purchased by the Lost guys.
For all of you Dark Tower fans, be it books or just the comics, we may get to see a film of our beloved series in the future.
Apparantly J.J. abrams and "Lost" co-conspirator Damon Lindelof have purchased the rights for the series from Stephen King for a staggering $19.00. Anyone who has read anything having to do with this world, knows this number holds significance for the series.
They do, however, want to hold off on this endeavor until Lost is finished, which should be this season. Lindelof recently told Lostpedia.com...
“We’re just so focused on finishing ‘Lost’ that it’s really hard to think about anything else. The last thing we want to think about is how to adapt a seven book series of, you know, basically the writer who we admire the most and look up to most and has inspired our work the most, and do anything with that. I think that it’s such a daunting task. We have a pretty daunting task in front of us ourselves [with the end of 'Lost'].”
Lindolf previously told AMC that he envisions the series on the same scope as Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” trilogy.
He also goes on to say:
“There are always ‘Dark Tower’ conversations, but the figuring out of what this will look like as a movie has not begun. If ‘The Dark Tower’ were in the right hands, I would love to see seven movies executed just right. But you have to get people to see the first one to get them to come and see the second one.”
With these kinds of attitudes attached, I have high hopes for this franchise.
What do you think about such an eddeavor?
