I'd say it has potential disaster written all over it. But if - IF - they can pull it off...

Also, I think casting is going to be paramount in this endeavor. I imagine getting "elite," "A-list" stars to sign on to this kind of thing (movie + series) with the time commitment it will require is going to be a bitch. Miscast Roland it's over.

Yup, especially when NBC gets 5 weeks in and decides to cut it due to low ratings, throwing everything into a mess.

Question is... does he have the balls to NOT cast Tom Hanks?

It could be good, if it's very dark and gritty in the way it looks. But if it's got that made for network tv gloss for the tv portions it will suck.

Keeping the cast together could be an interesting issue as well.

I did find it funny that I had just read a short story about Roland when I first saw this. I might just have to reread a couple of the first books, because there is a lot I have forgotten.

The more time I spend thinking about this... the less I actually like it. Splitting the series into two formats is such a gamble. And the downside massively outweighs the upside.

The Dark Tower has a built in audience, to be sure, but what about new fans? Are people going to commit to this idea? It'll be like watching every other season of LOST in a movie theatre. It'll be difficult to keep this from being too confusing. The series is hard enough already.

He should have been cast as the Trash Can Man in Stand. No make up needed.

That is such a great short story. I'm hoping they work it into the tv series.

Why the **** would split it into a TV series and movies?
