“The Dark Tower” TV Series Finds a Home at Amazon

Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series is an amazing combination of several different genres – including science fiction, horror, and dark fantasy – into a single epic tale that takes place over eight novels. King himself has described the series as his personal magnum opus. It tells the tale of a Gunslinger named Roland Deschain who must seek out a fabled building called the Dark Tower as his own world ‘moves on’. This critically-acclaimed series has received one movie adaptation so far, which came out in August 2017. It received mixed to poor reviews, however. Many critics have panned its

The Dark Tower TV Series Finds A Home At Amazon

Last year was meant to see the beginnings of an exciting and unique new franchise that was to cross over the mediums. Unfortunately though, like many shared universes before it, it tried to run before it could walk and pretty much fell flat on its face.

We are, of course, talking about The Dark Tower, which was the planned first installment in a series of films based on Stephen King’s magnum opus. Due to terrible reviews and lack of box office interest, however, the future looks bleak for the property. On the big screen, at least.

On TV, however, things could tell a different story. Originally, the idea was for the show to be a companion piece to the film series, but it now seems that the television side of things will forge its own path instead and finally, the wheels are in motion. That’s because after wallowing in development hell for years,

Kirsten Howard John Saavedra Feb 26, 2018

The Dark Tower TV show seems to be pressing ahead. It looks like Amazon are going to take a chance on it...

The Dark Tower - a book series that was once considered unfilmable - made its big screen debut last year, and whilst the reviews weren't exactly stellar, the TV companion series that was promised so long ago is still pressing ahead.

The series is now in development at Amazon, according to Deadline. We know that it was originally planned to tie into the 2017 film, but clearly that is no longer the plan, a fact seemingly backed up by Stephen King in a recent interview with Vulture.

"The TV series they’re developing now … we’ll see what happens with that. It would be like a complete reboot,

Childhood Film Fascinations That Became All-Time Favorites

In celebration of Sound on Sight’s 7th anniversary, writers were asked to come up with articles that present their childhood favorites in the realm of films, TV shows, books or games.

I chose films and anyone who has any familiarity with my writing knows I am virtually incapable of writing an article about a single film so I’m going to focus on a number of movies I saw in my youth.

Growing up in suburban Cincinnati, Ohio, I was fortunate enough to have my own room and my own TV set.

My family didn’t go out to the cinema very often so my introduction to movies was primarily through television.

The household cable television was limited to the family room and the parental restrictions that went with that so a far as movie watching went, it was mostly just me in my room where there were no

Josh Hartnett to Star in Post-Apocalyptic Western Gunslinger

Would humanity revert to the days of the wild west if the world was suddenly thrust into a post-apocalyptic future? It's certainly an intriguing possibility, and one that could make for a great movie. Post-apocalyptic films have often borrowed elements of westerns in the past, and now director Chris Nahon (Blood: The Last Vampire) will again be fusing the two genres with a film called Gunslinger (no relation to the 1956 Roger Corman film of the same name, as far as I know). Described as a "revenge-driven tale set in the near future in the snowy wasteland of a post-apocalyptic America", the story centers on two brothers who try to track down the gang responsible for the death of their parents. Josh Hartnett has signed on to star, while Mark Williams (Running Scared, The Cooler) will produce. There's no word on who is writing the script or where the story came from,
