I am both excited and absolutely horrified that this series of books, a huge part of my life, in a sense, is hitting the screen.
To be honest, my mental "Roland" is probably closest, at least aesthetically, to a slightly younger Bruce Cambell, so my expectation set is already
shot to Hell, as it were.
Another thought for me is that I have mixed feelings about any project that might involve King himself... When he takes a major role in the creative
process with his works... Well it's hit and miss for me. King being involved with scripting is a great plus. But when he gets involved in the film
making, I truly think the end results are lacking.
But since it's going to happen, most likely, whether or not we approve, I say....
The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed...
Here's hoping the visual journey lives up to its lineage.
