Television and film adaptation of Stephen King's Dark Tower series

Analyze the difficulties in the transition between the fantastical content of the Dark Tower series to the big screen. In what way would it be similar to such epics as Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones? What will be lost in the transition? What can be gained?

  • THIS NOTE CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE DARK TOWER SERIES. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. I think the most difficult thing to portray will be the demon sex scenes, and how Roland's encounter with the speaking ring demon in The Gunslinger leads to Susannah's pregnancy in the later books. Also, sorting out Marten & Walter may cause some difficulty, and I can see the producers making a decision to merge their characters into one. – Kristian Wilson 9 years ago
