Both Fangoria and Shock till you Drop are reporting that John Johnson (who?) is making his own realization of the Dark Tower series, inspired by Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came' and it's not based on King's Novels. The indie directer says that he's been dreaming about the Tower since he was about 5 years old and this feels he must make this film. I can understand that, but if I were Stephen King, I'd be pissed.
Of course, this is only if they actually call it 'Dark Tower'. I have no problem with him making a movie inspired by the Robert Browning poem, but to give it a title the brand that the King of horror has already established is a crime. I can't see them letting this happen, especially considering that talks of an adaptation on King's Saga is already been discussed on numerous occasions. It would be highway robbery if this little ol' director were to cash in on something Mr. King has been working on for so many years.
