Scooped on Saturday, November 13, 2010
Dark Tower creator Stephen King weighs in on the new plan to turn his septology of fantasy novels into three movies and two seasons of television episodes. "I always thought it would take more than a single movie, but I didn't see this solution coming," said the author.
Does it bother him that we won't get to see The Dark Tower made into seven feature length films? "I don't see that as a problem at all! We’ll have just enough latitude to make a great series," the author told Entertainment Weekly. "I've worked in network TV before, and every time I was squeezed a little, it just made me look for creative solutions. Besides, I always like to play in the biggest auditorium available!"
As for who he thinks would make the best candidates to play the ka-tet, King only had solid ideas about two of them. "I haven't got as far as casting in my thoughts, but when I write about Susannah Dean, I always kind of see Angela Bassett in my mind's eye," he said.
As for the other character King has an idea of, it's for Blaine the Mono -- and King wants to provide his own voice for that crazy train.
