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.
