It will first appear as a film, with theatrical release. It will then come to television (with the same actors from the movie) and continue on for a while as a series/show. It will next (contiguously) move back into another film (theater) and... you get the idea. It will be three movies, with a television series (as part of the the continuing saga) as bridges between the flicks.
I can't say (who can?) how well it will work or turn out... but nevertheless, it is highly intriguing. And at any rate, historic.
Ron Howard will be directing.
I will shamefully admit that I have not gotten around to reading The Dark Tower. But I probably will now that it's going to be adapted so "never before seen"ly. Besides, my fan Anon adores the series and (if I recall correctly) compared WIIaTQuestion? in terms of 'epicness' (to some degree). I should probably read it, then, no?
