The man in black fled across the desert...

...and the gunslinger followed.

If you're like me, and you're a fan of Stephen King's Dark Tower books, you likely heard this news already. They're making it into a series of both films and TV series.

While they don't need me to tell them what to do, here's how I'd actually break it all down:

1st Feature Film: Cover events in The Gunslinger
1st Season TV: Cover The Drawing of the Three and The Waste Lands, plus the beginning of Wizard and Glass (up to the big palaver)
2nd Feature Film: Cover Roland's past from Wizard and Glass and the showdown with Flagg
2nd Season TV: Cover Wolves of the Calla, Song of Suzannah, and the first part of The Dark Tower (up to the raid on Algul Siento)
3rd Feature Film: Conclude The Dark Tower

That would cut and condense a lot of stuff, but it seems to me like a better way to break it up than what's suggested in the article I lined to above (which seems to say The Waste Lands would be the 2nd movie, and Wizard and Glass would be the 2nd TV season, with the final three books crammed into the final movie).

Anyway, if anyone working on this project happens to come across this blog, you're welcome to the idea.
