The Dark Tower: Everything We Know So Far…

It has taken decades, but with the success of epics like Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones, Stephan King’s own saga will finally, after several false starts, find its place on the silver screen.

Book to movie adaptations are no new thing, especially not to a veteran like King, who has seen nearly 100 screen adaptations of his work.
