Mike Flanagan is including yet one more Stephen King adaptation to his repertoire: Deadline reviews that the Physician Sleep filmmaker is reuniting together with his frequent collaborator, producer Trevor Macy, for a brand new adaptation of the horror novelist’s The Darkish Tower sequence.
Flanagan advised Deadline that The Darkish Tower — which amalgamates parts of traditional horror, sci-fi, fantasy, and Western — has been his dream venture for fairly some time. He envisions the difference as a TV sequence to run for 5 seasons, adopted by two standalone options; contemplating King has penned 9 books within the franchise since 1982, the filmmakers have quite a lot of materials to drag from.
The Darkish Tower has been delivered to the display screen twice earlier than: Nikolaj Arcel directed a 2017 film for Sony starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, which garnered largely damaging critiques. Amazon purchased the rights to a TV adaptation the next yr, although they ultimately determined to not transfer ahead.
The destiny of the franchise appears a bit extra promising now with Flanagan and Macy on board, contemplating their monitor file with King variations like Physician Sleep and Gerald’s Recreation in addition to fan-favorite horror sequence like The Haunting of Hill Home. Keep tuned right here for extra particulars about their Darkish Tower adaptation as they arrive.
In October, Netflix unveiled the primary season of Flanagan’s The Midnight Membership sequence.
