Is the pronoun "it" referring to the preceding Dark Tower film or is he saying that IT will be filmed soon, meaning his novel IT?Sai King tweeted this a few hours ago:
"THE DARK TOWER movie is filming; IT begins soon. Pretty cool."
Come come, the journey has begun. I wanna see some shots.
Those came about in part because Scribner now owns the publishing rights to the first four books which were previously held by Penguin.Just got back from Hastings bookstore and I saw that there have been new re-releases of the first 4 Dark Tower trade paperback books and they all have this tag line at the bottom of the front cover:
Soon To Be A Major Motion Picture
The artwork is the same that Penguin used--just has the movie tag line added.Elba on the cover?
There's a paperback book out there by Herbert Lieberman, I think it was City Of The Dead, that has on the cover that it's soon to be a major motion picture starring Sharon Stone, but I don't believe it ever was filmed!!!That always bothers me when they do that with books. Any book.
He has been involved with this production from the start and has final script approval. I'm not sure how much control he has with casting. He won't be visiting the set or doing a cameo, at least for the first one, as it's being filmed in South Africa and he doesn't have time in his schedule to make that trip.Stephen is a producer for the first time on The Dark Tower. Before he was always executive producer on the adaptations he was directly involved in.
The way I understand it is that when he's executive producer he sort of has the role of an advisor: he talks to the producers and directors and offers his ideas. On Under the Dome he was allowed to influence the choice of the actors.
A producer on the other hand is someone who decides how the money on a production is gonna be spent.
If he is a producer on Dark Tower rather than an executive producer, does that mean this time his role on the film is bigger or different?
