The man behind television series “Lost” is in discussions with Stephen King about the Dark Tower series.
Abrams’ Bad Robot shingle has a first-look deal at Paramount for film projects and a deal with Warner Bros. Television for TV projects. The project is not yet set up at either company. On first glance, King’s tale — which sprawls across seven books as it blends the fantasy, sci-fi, horror and Western genres — might seem better suited for a multiple-episode television treatment.
On the other hand, its potential cost might call for a large-scale cinematic treatment. Sources say a number of entities have been chasing “Tower” but that King is looking for strong filmmaker involvement, which is where Abrams enters the picture.
