Is anyone else super excited over the first Dark Tower movie? As soon as the news came out, I squealed. That series is one of my favorites. My dad started letting me read Stephen King’s books at around 10, my mom was mad, she thought I was too young. My first of his books was The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon. I had nightmares, like she knew I would ,but I have read it multiple times. I have always loved to read, but his books opened up a whole new world for me, one where the character was just as, or more, important as the story. From there, I read whatever books of his I could, and then I found the Dark Tower series. It was love at first read. In fact, I intend to get “Go then, there are other Worlds than these,” tattooed on my arm.
I have heard that they were considering Idris Elba as Roland, anyone else? Have they confirmed it yet? He’s not my first choice, but if they handle it well, he could be great.
Anyone else super excited? Thoughts, feelings?
