Was hoping with today's technology that they would do the dt like they did lord of the rings. Would u do one long movie, a movie for each book, 3 movies ect. I was thinking of doing what they did with star wars. Do the last 3 first then go back and do the earlier ones. I know that doesn't work in books but seems to work with movies. Seems people like to know the character s then see them back in time? Wondering your thoughts

Part 2...... this probably been covered but who would u like to see direct this and who would play roland, man in black, Eddie ect. Roland I see as Viggo mortenson. Man in black Benedict cumberbatch. Eddie I like as Topher grace. There is one I like better for Eddie but can't think of his name. Skinny guy. I think he's played in greaser movie of some kind. Man its bugging me.
If they hope to even come close to magic created by the books, it would have to be an entire television series- several of the books could easily be a whole season, and a few could be more than a whole season. Look at shannara chronicles, and game of thrones- great books are the best thing to ever happen to the boob tube. For the record what happened to star wars is exactly what I Don’t want to happen here - i lost a lot of respect for lucas with the prequel trilogy but the sequel trilogy was even worse and worst of all was when he went and after more than twenty years of a policy of allowing other authors to contribute stories to his universe, he suddenly arbitrarily decides that he wasn’t paying enough attention to what had got published under the star wars titles, and now is saying none of those stories is cannon anymore and all those books fans bought that they loved, all those new characters they fell in love with.. gone, worse, they never existed at all - and worse even than that is after having fourty plus years story world time, truly great tales, he negated them all so he could make a crappy sequel that is unsatisfying and trite- most of the story is ripped off from the first trilogy, is badly done and ruined the idea of the jedi and for what? So a greedy famous millionaire who used to be widely respected for his creative vision, can make more money, more fame, sell more merchandise. Whoo! Sorry let me get down off my soapbox now, didnt realize i had so much anger festering there

In fact why not a show that’s designed from inception to highlight All of king’s works that relate in any important way to the dark tower- it could begin each show with credits or whatever but you hear “ at the center of all possible worlds lies the axle upon which reality itself spins- the Dark Tower - since time out of mind the tower has been assaulted by Ram Abbalah- the crimson king- who seeks to cast all of existance into the darkness behind reality- but the tower is not defenseless- it calls forth those born to protect it, special men and woman from many worlds, many Earths - they are a sacred brotherhood of the chosen, warriors for the White, they are the gunslingers and this is their story” first story could be the gunslinger and while he’s taking like a thousand years to cross the desert we can jump to the story of Jack and the orb of forever(the Talisman) later black house, then into maybe ALan Pangborn during the events of needful things - the stories don’t all have to involve the tower, but as it unfolds we would see how battle or warrior relates (for example, the evil shop owner is surely a creature of the prim) the goal would not be to rush to the end but to immerse the watcher completely in the extended lore of the tower - it could easily be a show tha lasts longer than a decade with none the unfortunate lameness of some long running shows (supernatural springs to mind, no offense to any fans, but how has a polished turd like that last twelve seasons?)
