J.J. Abrams to Climb Stephen King's "Dark Tower"

by | February 15, 2007 | Comments

Well, here’s a book (ok, series of books) that I’ve been waiting to see on the big screen for what seems like an eternity. Actually this project might hit the small screen. It’s a little confusing, but producer J.J. Abrams will definitely be involved.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Abrams and Stephen King will bring the author’s "Dark Tower" series to the cinemas (with Paramount) or to your TV screen (with Warner Bros.)

All we seem to know for sure is that A) Stephen King really loves Abrams’ TV show "Lost," and B) the "Dark Tower" series is certainly ripe for some kind of visual adaptation. How large the scope will be remains to be seen.

What do you guys think? A TV series? A mini-series? A movie followed by two sequels and a prequel? How would you turn King’s (awesome but pretty darn weird) "Tower" books into a movie/TV show?
