Unfortunately looks like Universal is passing on the chance to bring The Dark Tower to the big and small screens. Something I am glad and sad about. Sad that it will take longer to receive a product, but glad, because I wasn't too keen on the movie and tv series ideas. I think that you've either got to go all Harry Potter/LOTR on it and do 5,6, or 7 films to give it the grandure that it needs (and I'd rather see it on the big screen), or take it to the series idea and run it for say 4 or 5 seasons, but put it on HBO or Showtime, so you can put in the meat (sex, language, violence, heart, effects) that you have to have to make the series full, that you can't put on network tv. Course you run into a casting problem with Jake, as any boy you cast won't last through the ten years of production without needing a shave....While I'm on casting, I like Javier Bardem, but don't see him as Roland..but I think for damn sure that Rutina Wesley (Tara on True Blood) is the hands down choice to plad Oddetta, Detta, Susannah!
