The studio felt that the sequence pilot from govt producer/showrunner Glen Mazzara was “not on the level of other large-scope elevated genre series,” resembling their upcoming The Lord of the Rings.

Obviously, this can be a enormous blow to followers of King’s well-regarded sequence of books. Originally, the present was deliberate as a tie in to the (deliberate) film sequence that kicked off with 2017’s The Dark Tower, starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey. Unfortunately, that movie failed to search out an viewers, which left additional variations dormant. Amazon supposed the TV adaptation to extra intently observe King’s novels, and concentrate on the origin story of Roland Deschain (Sam Strike) and his battles with the person in black (Jasper Pääkkönen), however, alas, that dream -at least for the time being- is useless.
The solid of the pilot is believed, per the report, to have included Michael Rooker, Jerome Flynn and Joana Ribeiro, although nothing was ever made official in these regards.
