Hace unas semanas se anunció que Mike Flanagan había firmado un contrato para trabajar en nuevos proyectos para Amazon y ahora se ha revelado que uno de esos será la adaptación de la novela The Dark Tower de Stephen King, la cual vería la luz en otro año y en caso de no terminar en el streaming sería vendido a otros lados.
Having lived with this project as long as I have, I have an enormous amount of it worked out in my brain. But I have a pilot script I’m thrilled with and a very detailed outline for the first season and a broader outline for the subsequent seasons. I think eventually, if we’re able to get it going, there are some other writers I want to fold into that process whom I’ve worked with before; I think they would be really fabulous for a very small, intimate writers room where we can continue to break it. I’ll tell you, more than half of my life, I’ve closed my eyes and been able to watch a lot of this play out, I’ve dreamed about this. That first shot which comes right off at the first incredible sentence of the first book, The Gunslinger, I’ve had that image just rattling around in my head since I was an undergrad. It’s going to have to get out of there eventually, I really need to get it out of my head.»
Cabe recordar que la novela ya había sido llevada anteriormente a la pantalla grande con malos resultados, por lo que una serie sería mucho mejor.
