If you're interested in Marvel's "Dark Tower" comic book series from legendary novelist Stephen King, or just interested in the possibility of having J.J. Abrams (who was just confirmed as the director on Star Trek XI) work on a film adaptation of it, then it's your best bet to read either of these reports from the New York Comic-Con where King spoke at Cinematical (full transcript) or Ain't It Cool News. Apparently King has spoken with J.J. Abrams about the project, and is confident in and trusts Abrams, which is very rare for Stephen King. He said that when Abrams first approached him, his response was, "I'll tell you what… you can option the books and see what you can do with it." There's also an update from Ain't It Cool News coming in just a few days on The Dark Tower, so stay tuned for those details and much more, including what this movie and comic book is even be about.
