The problem with making any Dark Tower movie is that you have to start with book one, and that one is the slowest book of the bunch. If it tanks we don't get the drawing of the 3, which is my favorite of the series.

It is a slow book. But I think it lends itself to film better than most of the other books in the series. It has the biggest upside, I guess. I think it could/should be visually stunning and it'll be the shortest of the films. There's a lot that can go right with Gunslinger. It's everything that comes after that makes me nervous. At least on film. The books get better... but the potential for ****-up also exponentially increases.

Kind of like Gandalf with a gun.
Reminds me of Mad Max.

Always a fighter but with a huge dead space inside him...

I saw that somebody on the site with the full story suggested james mcavoy for eddie... i could get behind that!
I like olyphant for roland, not sure who i'd like to see as susannah. I don't know if i'm excited or scared for this whole project! It could be very awesome or incredibly terrible... It is such an awesome story! I read through it probably once a year, and i'd hate to see it get trashed!

I would think they'd combine several books into a movie if only 3 movies are planned.

You don't think they'll just pick 3 books out of the 7 and leave the other 4 books completely out?

Season 1 - The Drawing of the Three
Film 2 - Wastelands
Season 2 - Wizard and Glass
Film 3 - Wolves of the Calla/Song of Susannah/Dark Tower
I'm sure the content of the final three books will be massively truncated. Some have speculated that Wolves & Song of Susannah may be cut almost entirely.

I guess we'll have to wait and see. I am excited for a little more info on the exact breakdown.

That would suck if they cut Wolves. I thought that story was awesome.

Wolves is actually my favorite book in the series. I'd be really, REALLY bummed to see it cut. It's a really exceptional book. It's so visual too.

I enjoyed the story, but it felt a little out of place in the meta-story. I could definitely see the vast majority of that book being cut...
