J.J. Abrams To Release Stephen King's Dark Tower
J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof may be releasing a "Dark Tower" film, according to comicbookmovie.com. The pair has recently bought the rights to the series from Stephen King. Don't look for the film to near in the future, however.
"We're just so focused on finishing ‘Lost' that it's really hard to think about anything else. The last thing we want to think about is how to adapt a seven book series of, you know, basically the writer who we admire the most and look up to most and has inspired our work the most, and do anything with that. I think that it's such a daunting task. We have a pretty daunting task in front of us ourselves [with the end of 'Lost']." He also stated that "There are always ‘Dark Tower' conversations, but the figuring out of what this will look like as a movie has not begun. If ‘The Dark Tower' were in the right hands, I would love to see seven movies executed just right. But you have to get people to see the first one to get them to come and see the second one."
