I see Drawing of the 3 as a film you could get guy like Howard or Darabont to
shoot as written, but The Gunslinger needs a director with a creative vision, IMO.
Now Wastelands... Now there is a book with a huge amount of ****-up potential. They better hire ZZ top to do the score for that one!
That was awesome.
It would be really cool to see each film directed by a different artist. That would have been really fun to see. I don't disagree at all about The Gunslinger
film as directed by Howard. But he does seem to have a deep respect for the source material. Maybe this will be the thing that breaks Howard out of his safe-zone. He's got an eye, he's just too safe. Maybe this forces him to take some risks.
