Those tie-INS might not work as well on film. I say they should cut most of Wolves almost all of Song of Sussanah (a completely skippable book aside from a few creepy creature moments, BTW) and cut a lot out of Dark Tower to make up the ending.
I'm finding a lot of people out there on the world wide interwebs share these sentiments. And, I suppose I can understand them.
But, as I said, Wolves
is probably my favorite book in the series. Wizard And Glass
being a close second. And (I'm probably in the minority here also) I LOVE the meta-fiction of Song
. So, I'd be sad to see a lot of that stuff go. But in the interest of steamlining... if they're going cut stuff, that seems like the "right" stuff to cut.
This is why the whole damn thing should be a cable series. Then, you don't really have to cut anything.
