Anyone else read the dark tower series? Do you believe the movie will follow the books? Personally I think it will be a bastardization of a mix of the books unless they turn it into a multiple movie deal.

I read the first few books but dropped it. Things just seemed to be stretching on interminably like Robert Jordan's 'Wheel of Time' saga. I don't see how you could make a movie out of it and retain any of what made it good. Maybe a multi-season series but it would take some talent to pull off even then.

The most horrible book to read in this day and age is Stranger in a Strange Land. It's based entirely on 1960-1970's information about Mars.

K...... Not sure about that. Back to the topic I can only hope this movie covers the Gunslinger but who knows... Looks ok but wont know until I watch it. Anything would be better than that garbage mist series! How could he allow such trash.
