The Dark Tower Film

Recommended Posts

So I'm about 2/3s of the way through the first book (The Gunslinger), I'll probably finish it today.  The books is excellent.

I'm not sure if this looks like a faithful adaptation of the entire series, but I LOVE Idris Elba.  The trailer looks pretty amazing.

Thoughts and ideas?

I started the first book but never finished, will pick it up again once I have time 

Trailer looks very action movie like. Was hoping for more of a True Detective esque vibe

Apparently it happens outside of the series.  So there's a lot of flexibility within the world of the novels.  Again, I love Idris Elba =)

It's sort of a "sequel" to the books, which you'll understand when you get to the very end.  Or is it the beginning?  :)

Oh, and that trailer motherfuging rocks.  Hope to see the rest of the ka-tet if it does well.  When he started with the Creed, I got goosebumps.

Never read it but the trailer looks awesome... not sure why Elba isn't in more movies.

He's the obvious choice for the new Bond but they're too scared to do it.

The Dark Tower series is fantastic and ties together nearly all of King's literary works. I have no idea how they'll adapt it for movies but am interested in seeing how they try given the cast they've assembled.

Besides the fact they won't do a black Bond because of the angry whites.  To my understanding, they want a younger actor to play Bond for a rebooting of the franchise.

Wasn't Casino Royale the reboot??? Lol

Because Daniel Craig gas been very public in his desire to leave the franchise.  They want to find a guy in his early 30s to be a new Bond.

Personally, Idris Elba would be a phenomenal Bond.
