Stephen King's Dark Tower Series- Coming to a theatre and TV screen via Universal

Stephen King sold the rights to his Dark Tower series to Universal, according to multiple news sources. The seven novels are going to be released as three movies and an NBC TV series. They are going to be "telling the story across multiple platforms and multiple hours." So some of it will be on TV and some of it will be in the three movies.

Ron Howard is going to direct the first movie and the first season of the TV series. Akiva Goldsman is who they got to write the scripts. This is the hack to who brought us the dud movie version of The Da Vinci Code, which almost no one liked. Maybe I'm being too harsh. He also wrote "A Beautiful Mind." That was pretty good.

As a fan of the books (well, except for most of 5 and 6), I'm excited, but I'm wary of the talent they brought in to do this. King would not give the rights to the people behind "LOST," but apparently Goldsman and Howard are worthy?

It's great that they are going to delve deep into the full world and story though, because it looks like they are going to give it enough time. Will viewers watch the series and then go to the movies to see what happens? I know I would. I wonder which parts are going to be films? Probably books 1, 4, and 7?

I wonder who will play which characters...If they are going to be movies as well, big stars may be looking to be attached. Viggo Mortensen might make a good gunslinger. Too bad Joaquin Phoenix is crazy now, or he could have been Eddie. Maybe he was too old anyway. Thandie Newton for Susan?
