There are sagas so long that they are very difficult to adapt and an example is The Dark Tower. They should give it another chance though.

Decades ago it was said that it was impossible to adapt The Lord of the ringsbut it arrived Peter Jackson and gave a lesson on how things should be done. Then other extensive works have tried to follow in his footsteps and we have other great examples such as Game of Thrones either The Witcher, which have benefited from the rise of streaming. But… Is it possible to make a great adaptation of The Dark Tower? In 2017 they released the film of The Dark Tower directed by Nikolay Arcel and starring Idris Elbe Y Matthew McConaughey. It was not only very poorly received by fans of the books of Stephen King, but it was also a small box office flop. Since it cost about 60 million dollars and raised only 113 million worldwide.

Now there is so much money in the series that are released on streaming that it may be time to try again.

mike flanagan has worked with Netflix on series like The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, MidnightMass Y The Midnight Club. Now, he reveals in an interview with IGNthat his great dream is to adapt the dark tower.“I keep going back to it because it has its own gravity. It would just be a matter of taking the more fantastical elements that might be more difficult to connect with, especially where it gets quite meta at the midpoint, and grounding them, just incorporating them. Otherwise, the characters are who they are, the arc is what it is. And I think the way not to do The Dark Tower is to try to make it into something else, try to make it Star Wars or make it Lord of the Rings. It is what it is. It is perfect. It’s just as exciting as all of those things and just as involving and it’s a story about a small group of people and all the odds in the whole world are against them, and they come together. As long as it’s that, it’ll be fine, and there won’t be a dry eye in the house.” the dark tower.“The first thing, it would be a black screen and the words: ‘The man in black fled into the desert, and the gunman followed him’, appearing in the silence, and you listened to the wind, would gradually fade to this landscape at Lawrence of Arabia style with a silhouette in the distance that makes its way through the hard surface and we would build it from there, in order, to the end.” Would you like to see Mike Flanagan do another adaptation of The Dark Tower?
