Lindelof to Tackle 'Dark Tower' Movies

1 post in this topic

According to The Hollywood Reporter Damon Lindelof will “tackle a potential franchise adaptation of the epic Stephen King series The Dark Tower for Paramount after Lost ends.” Considering the popularity of Marvel’s Dark Tower comics, this could be good news for direct market retailers, though Lindelof won’t be able get started until Lost ends its sixth and final season in 2010.

Lindelof is comics fan who has praised Watchmen as “the greatest piece of popular fiction ever produced.” Lindelof has also tried his hand at writing comics. He began working on a six-issue Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk mini-series in 2006, but it was suspended after just two issues due to his heavy workload on Lost. However, he has turned in scripts for all six issues to Marvel and the series is back on the schedule for 2009.

According to the Reporter, The Dark Tower project is a major component of the recent extension of the deal between J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and Paramount.

I hope these movies don't get crapped on by bad directing, casting, acting, etc. :\

      I watched the first 3 episodes of this tonight and I'm loving it so far. Unlike the movie where everyone is stuck in a grocery store, the bulk of the cast is trapped in a mall, while others are in a church or on the road trying to avoid getting killed. Spike has done a good job with this. Depending on how they treat this series it could be their own Walking Dead kind of show. No zombies needed here with the amount of monsters ready to kill everyone.

      I have noticed the selection isn't nearly what it used to be. Back in the day I'd search for a movie and 80% of the time it was on netflix. Now I don't even use the search feature because the last 20 movies I've searched for are never on there. Netflix used to be this great replacement to blockbuster with every movie made available, but now it looks like all the content rights holders and networks are pulling their properties off and either selling the rights to other streaming services like Amazon Prime or Hulu or they're making their own streaming service like CBS all access. I'm tempted to cut my cable and switch to streaming only services but I still haven't found a combo of apps or services that will give me the channel selection or content I fully want. I already have amazon prime and netflix. But to replace cable I figure if I go with Sling blue with HBO and starz, hulu, hbo go (part of my cable package now), and over the air HD antenna I'd have the majority of the channels I watch with cable except for science channel. I'd probably save about $30 a month over my current cable plan. Anyone use Sling?
      Also, with the companies pulling their content from netflix and making their own streaming services, maybe in the near future cable will actually be a good deal again compared to being nickel and dimed by all the different apps? I do like seeing different streaming services offering competition like Sling and PlayStation VUE, but I still feel on the fence about actually cutting off my cable for streaming only.

      If Nintendo had Pixar make their movies while maintaining control of the property so another "Super Mario Bros." live action fiasco never happens again, they could make some really awesome movies. But if Nintendo teams up with some companies in Japan that did the live action death note or attack on titan movies, this could lead to some huge flops.
