From what I have read, the on screen adaptation of this book has been going back and forth from a film to a mini-series adaptation. A film adaptation would allow for big name actors to lead in the roles like with the Shawshank Redemptiom, but with significantly less screen time for the story. A mini-series would allow more time for the nuisances of the story and it has been done already with King's Under the Dome. Which would be better? Movie or mini-series?
