Help us, MRC! You're our only hope!
It's a sad day for Stephen King, his Dark Tower series, and potential gunslinger Russell Crowe!
Warner Bros — a studio with many sound stages to fill after Harry Potter and Batman franchises closed shop — just passed on adapting eight ah-mazing novels that could give them a decade of sweet films!!
Akiva Goldsman wrote a supposedly sweet script for part one, The Gunslinger, and we thought this would become the epic franchise to end all epic franchises!
The trajectory here included not only a slew of dark, twisted, and uber-awesome films but also a potentially epic HBO miniseries in between!
WB seemed like King's last hope but, no, there is another!
Media Rights Capital, the film company behind Ted and next year's big budget Matt Damon flick, Elysium, is still in negotiations for the rights!
Do it, MRC! Puhhleeeeaze!!
Someone has to buy it!
We don't care if it's put on by the glee club at William McKinley High School! This series of amazeballz novels DEMANDS an adapatation!!
