Stephen Kings The Dark Tower Movie Release Date

Herner Klenthur

Finally after massive delays one of the most sought out Stephen King adaptations has a release date. When an adaption of King‘s series of books titled, The Dark Tower, was first announced in 2007, director J.J. Abrams was originally attached to direct but soon backed out.

In 2010 Universal made an official announcement that the project was a go, however, like Mr. Abrams, the studio soon dropped out citing disagreements with producer Ron Howard and marketability issues.  Then there was talk of a series on basic cable, then premium cable broadcaster HBO, and so on, and so on, and so on.

The film will now be released on January 13th 2017 and be directed by Nikloaj Arcel. Excited? I am

        I am a huge fan of the book series… but I am only half excited. It sounds like it will be one movie only? How can they possibly adapt the huge story from these 7 books in one movie?

          Yeah, that doesn’t make sense. I always hoped the first movie would follow the story of the first book, and maybe add the second. The series is too long to make only one movie.

        The Dark Tower is by far my favorite book series. I have long been awaiting a film or television adaptation. I am a bit worried that Nikloaj is directing because I don’t know any of his films other than Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and that’s one of the worst films I’ve ever seen (this could be entirely due to subject matter). Can anyone who read Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and saw Nikloaj’s adaptation comment on how closely Nikloaj followed the original?

        No way they can cram 7 books into one movie and it be anything but bad.
