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!!

Nooooo!!!

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!!

    stephen king is pure genoius there were spinning things eating the world so the plane couldnt land reminded me of the spinning things eating everything in their path on ”battleship”

    i think these days all the films are just about killing no actual story i call them porn movies because they have no story line just kill kill kill without any actual plot or depth

    people dont want their brains full of shit on a daily basis (except here lol)

    but enough is enough put some talent back into the movies please couple stephen with russell i dont see how u can go wrong ..

    They should have locked down Christian Bale a few years ago when they had the chance. They blew it and they know it. He won't be doing anymore franchises for awhile.if ever. He was the only choice that would have worked in a great way. It's just not worth the money and effort now.
