At this rate it will take longer to get the movies made than it took Roland to find the damned Tower!
There have been numerous threads before about casting and problems adapting this series for the screen. I will take this opportunity to mention one problem that I don’t think anyone has mentioned before, and that seems to me to be a biggie:
Assuming they do it Harry Potter style, making one or two films per book and releasing one per year, they are going to have to either keep casting new Jakes or find a kid who is willing to take puberty-blocking hormones for a long time! I assume no studio is going to be willing to film the whole shebang before finding out if the first couple films flop or not. Also, Hollywood is tragically short on high profile African-American double amputee actresses, but I guess that can probably be dealt with through CGI.
