Interesting Dark Tower News:

May 14th, 2004 - A report from over at Ain't It Cool News has it that there's talk about making an animated Dark Tower movie! Just "talk" mind you, but it seems at though Genndy Tartakovsky, the creator of "Samurai Jack" and "The Clone Wars" wants to do it and release it on HBO. To get more on this story, click here to read what our ol' friend Quint has to say...



The following are my own casting choices for individual characters that can be found in The Dark Tower series. Note however that the likelyhood of a Dark Tower movie ever possibly being made has about one chance in a billion. I think King himself stated this same fact in so many words some years ago. Personally, unless there was an amost unlimited cash allowance, top notch actors/actresses directors and producers, and myself as a creative consultant (my ego has no bounderies!), not to mention sticking to the books exactly, the movies should never be made. I just hate to mess with perfection. ;)
