I am fascinated by the idea of movies and television working together to tell a story. Having a movie release, then a television series, then another movie, and on and on, seems like an interesting way of doing things. Sure there have been tv shows telling stories after movies (Clone Wars), or movies following up television shows (Sex in the City atrocities), but I’m intrigued by doing them together as one huge project. Seems like it could be the next step in entertainment.
Of course if they chose another work, I’d be more interested. The massive amounts of padding in the Dark Tower series is enough to make me lose interest. But still, a fascinating idea.
