Stephen King’s sprawling Dark Tower book series is being given the big (and small) screen treatment courtesy of director Ron Howard.

The seven-tome series, which King himself has described as his magnum opus, follows gunslinger Roland, who is on a quest toward a mythical tower that is said to be the nexus of the universe.

Universal Pictures have given the go-ahead to a trilogy of films based on the books, with Ron Howard directing the first instalment. Not only that, but a TV series will air directly after the release of the first film that fills in the blanks before the second movie.

Thoughts on Ron Howard doing this? Should be interesting.

I am a huge fan of the Dark Tower series.

HUGE fan.

I'm hoping for the best because I don't want to have to send a legion of p**sed off mutant badgers after Mr. Howard.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
