Unfortunate News: No Dark Tower Movies Anytime Soon

Jake and Oy wait for a new director

Seems J.J. Abrahms is “terrified” of creating a film series of  The Dark Tower that could become an abortion, ultimately doubting his own genius. He and writer Damon Lindelof (who both borne LOST into the public consciousness with ease) have officially said “nah” to adapting the seven-novel, ultimately “Meta-fiction” story to cinematic life.  I’m kinda happy that JJ won’t be doing it, but sad that it’s postponed.  Abrams says he’s too much of a fan to take it on, afraid he’ll screw it up.

As a fan of both Stephen King and Frank Darabont, I have to wonder why this project wasn’t offered to the guy who faithfully directed three adaptations of King’s work (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, and The Mist).  Check those links, they are the work of a true fan of both film and King’s take on interesting fiction.
