La Tour Sombre en film & série tv

 Voilà, la Tour Sombre sur les écrans, c'est pour bientôt. Et pour la première fois, les américains vont associer le cinéma et la télévision pour adapter l'immense saga de Stephen King. Imaginez donc une trilogie pour le cinéma et deux saisons pour la série tv. Une saison viendra s'intercaler entre deux films pour faire la jonction.

Et c'est Ron Howard qui se chargera de réaliser le premier film et la première saison de la série tv. Le tout sera écrit par Akiva Goldsman.

Voici ce qu'il ressort du communiqué de presse de NBC :

“I’ve been waiting for the right team to bring the characters and stories in these books to film and TV viewers around the world,” said King.  “Ron, Akiva, Brian along with Universal and NBC have a deep interest and passion for the The Dark Tower series and I  know that will translate into an intriguing series of films and TV shows that respect the  origins and the characters in The Dark Tower that fans have come to love.”

“Building a franchise home for The Dark Tower is an exciting opportunity for this studio,  and we’re thrilled that Stephen has entrusted us to bring his beloved novels to the big  screen,” said Fogelson.

“Stephen King is a brilliant storyteller who creates imaginary worlds that resonate with the  broadest audiences across ages and demographics,” said Gaspin.  “We are thrilled to  partner with our colleagues in the film division and Brian, Ron and Akiva to bring Stephen’s vision to the largest audience possible through this innovative multi-platform  collaboration.”

Howard, Grazer and Goldsman are planning for the first film in the trilogy to be  immediately followed by a television series that will bridge the second film.  After the  second film, the television series will pick up allowing viewers to explore the adventures of  the protagonist as a young man as a bridge to the third film and beyond.  

“We are excited to have found partners at Universal who understand and embrace our  approach to King’s remarkable epic,” said Howard.  “By using both the scope and scale of  theatrical filmmaking and the intimacy of television we hope to more comprehensively do justice to the characters, themes and amazing sequences King has given us in The Dark  Tower novels.  It might be the challenge of a lifetime but clearly a thrilling one to take on and explore.”

“The worlds of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series are richly detailed, inter-locking and  deeply connected,” said Goldsman.  “By telling this story across media platforms and over  multiple hours—and with a view to telling it completely—we have our best chance of  translating Roland’s quest to reach The Dark Tower onto screen.  We are proceeding with  tremendous excitement, fidelity to the source material and, quite frankly, no small amount of awe at this opportunity.”

“King has created the most visually enthralling places and characters in The Dark Tower,”  said Grazer.  “The synergy created across all the media divisions of our partners at NBC  Universal to tell this remarkable story is ground-breaking and invigorating.  This project  will be one of the most exciting and challenging that I will have ever worked on and I am  thrilled to be a part of it.”
