‘The Dark Tower’ Is Getting A Second Chance Thanks To Amazon

Published

on

The Dark Tower had all of the tools to become a major box office hit. Unfortunately, with terrible reviews and disappointing box office numbers, that didn’t turn out to be the case. But instead of giving up, the folks behind the scenes will continue to deliver these classic stories, just in another format.

A Clean Slate

In 2016, a television show for The Dark Tower was announced to connect with the films. After being in limbo for a while, Amazon revealed plans to host the series on their streaming service. To distance itself from the 2017 film, this show will be a complete reboot of the franchise.

Columbia Pictures

The show is slated to be developed by Glen Mazzara, who is best known for his work on The Shield and The Walking Dead. Nikolaj Arcel, who will co-produce the show, told Indiewire, “Now, we’re going to be able to even lift lines directly, or like [write] characters exactly as they are. Which, as a fan, was exciting in a different way.”

There Is Only One Gunslinger

The new show is set to dig deeper into the origin story of Roland Deschain. It will include elements from the fourth book in the series Wizard and Glass. There’s no word if Idris Elba and Tom Taylor will reprise their roles in the show.

Columbia Pictures

The roles of Cortland Andrus, Cuthbert Allgood, and Alain Johns have yet to be cast. Filming is slated to start later this year.

Hope For The Big Screen

The Dark Tower film made $113 million worldwide on a $60 million budget. Many critics lambasted the film for not being true to its source material.

Despite the negative press, there is talk about a second film based on The Drawing of the Three novel. Author Stephen King wants the second film to be a bit riskier with an R rating. “I think that’s sort of where we’re coming from now, where the movies need to go,” he told Collider.
