    Look, I apologize in advance for how rude this is going to sound, but...are you ignorant? Do you have no grasp on how expensive a Dark Tower movie would be, let alone a full series of them? You'd need to raise $500 million, bare minimum. Can't be done, and you'd be foolish to try.

    I am not a fan of movies from books and as this is one of my favorites ever..... well.
    You do know you can elect to simply not watch it, right?

I love the DT series and if it never gets made into a movie I will be happy to reread it over and over again and be quite satisfied with the images in my mind's eye.
    I would invest in a movie's production, but only if I stood to gain from it. In the case of donating a tiny amount of money, my potential return would be necessarily tiny; but it would have to exist, if only potentially and only in tiny form. Otherwise, I'd be a fool for investing it, wouldn't I?

    Ah, I see. THAT I can sympathize with.

    Yeah. I think if there's no hope of getting in back it's really just throwing money at it rather than investing.

    I interviewed Ron Howard and Akiva Goldsman for a book that's coming out soon. They discuss their plans in detail--I'm intrigued by their approach and I hope they get their financing.

    I met Mr. Goldsman once. He was very nice. I like his writing.

    I have been excited and disappointed so many times now that I'll believe it when I see the line up form for the movie, which will probably be.....Never!

    With or without them, it will happen eventually. Whether any of us live to see it is another matter...

    Personally, I think it has a lot of potential. It won't be easy. Lots of things will have to be changed/added/deleted from/to the story of the novels, but as long as the end result is a good series, I can and will roll with those changes.
