Last fall I wrote about the brilliance of Stephen King’s Dark Tower books. I mostly quoted Cory Doctorow, actually, who put it better than I could. I haven’t read the final novel of the seven-book series, but I’m looking very forward to it.
Happily, Slashdot reports that King and Marvel comics are going to collaborate on a comic book based on the series. Can a movie (or movies) be far behind?
Thinking about a possible movie, I’ve been puzzling over who should play the lead–essentially, a younger Clint Eastwood. My friend Matthew offered the obvious solution: Viggo Mortensen.
