Nikki Finke's Deadline broke the story, calling the ambitious plans "unprecedented" in their scope, and SpinOff Online reports: "Howard will direct the first film in the series, followed by a full-length television season that would reunite all of the major Dark Tower cast and crew members on the small screen. Once the second film hits theaters, a second season of the television series will air, drawing influence from Marvel’s prequel comic series that depicted Roland Deschain as a young gunslinger. The third film would be the final entry in the series, rounding out the story of Roland’s journey towards the fabled Dark Tower."
This sounds like exactly what the epic tale deserves. I can't wait to see the adventures of Rowland the Gunslinger, Randall Flagg, and all the others on screen in movie theaters and on television.
