this is garbage. jack is supposed to be a dirty blonde, lily a blonde bombshell b-movie actress. they`re supposed to be gorgeous, both of them -- these two are hideous. the special effects are absolute crap and that scene should have taken about twenty seconds.

if they`re so focused on that, they`re leaving out a great deal of good.

i`m so depressed now.

*sigh* Damn it. I like "The Talisman", why did they have to butcher it? And who the hell walks in on their mother if they think they`re in the shower??? *shivers*

Don`t worry, Randy, this is just a demo by an amature. God willing they will make the movie, and God willing, they won`t butcher the crap out of it like this abomination.

That was a awesome book. So was Black House. And coranthulle I like your casting, except for Susannah. If they ever make a Dark Tower it better be done really well or else I`ll be pissed.

RecluseGamer, I`ve read the book (wolf). And no, I wouldn`t (wolf) check. I`d wait a few (wolf) minutes (wolf) before blatantly stepping in on her (wolf).

Jesus, where would you draw the line? Soon your purposefully walking in on her every few minutes while she`s taking a dump or diddlin` herself. No. Thank. You! Cancer patients like privacy every once in awhile too, you know.

He is worried about his mom, she has terminal cancer, if you would read the book before watching this scene it would make more sense. If you thought your mom might have died while in the shower, wouldn`t you check?

Redone; read them and loved them the only continuation was the departure in long road home. The gunslinger is borne (volume 1) was almost directly from the novels with little to no deviation. All it really did was take the stories of his childhood and cobled them all together. From his trials with Cort to the death of Susan. It was well done.

Flagg is young sometimes and old others... but he is always kinda a jester of sorts. And because of his role in 23 I felt Carey could pull it off.

The problem with eastwood or ford is that you cant make them look younger. Remember you have to have someone that can look young and old. I loved Cusak in 1408. He is a good actor that has a face that could be in his 20s or in his 40s with a little help. And doing wizard and glass as a movie I would find it preferable to have the same actor rather than finding someone that looks like the actor to play him as younger. Granted the ages would have to be altered from early teen roland to possibly early to mid 20`s roland. But if you are playing him as an 40 to 50s something roland the whole film them it wouldnt really matter, because well, time is funny on their side isnt it? As for Halle over Beyonce, I picture susannah as a darker more built woman than Halle can pull off. I can think of others that I would rather see over beyonce but its star power im looking for in the list. The hard one to cast will be Jake. Really got to get him right or it wont work.

That was terrible acting, yes. The book was excellent, but I have a feeling that`s going to suck. The characters are all wrong. The mother is supposed to be skinny, wasting away and bitter. The boy looks retarded and not at all capable of reaching the emotional depth of the character in the book. :p

This IS supposed to be a comedy, right?
`Cause this sure brought on the lols.

Acting is horrid and King`s movies usually have a shiz ending.

+ Agreed with RandyTheFool. "And who the hell walks in on their mother if they think they`re in the shower???" Awkwarrrd!

Hayden Panettiere could play Susan if that`s who you mean? But shes also way too young to play Susannah. I think Hayden`s too.. "smiley" to play Susan. I`m not exactly a fan of her "acting" abilities.

Uh, Flippant.. Hayden Panettiere is white. Susannah is black. And her heritage is a fair storyline, so it wouldn`t be able to be played by a white actress.

I LOVE Stephen King. The Dark Tower and Gerald`s Game are my faveourites.

If I understood this correctly the kid was hallucinating, therefore when he entered the bathroom the mom mom mom mom moooooooom was actually in there, then she acts as if his dear and prolly only son didn`t see her "hairy monster". It is a very creepy movie, indeed.

My list for the Dark Tower series:

Roland = Clint Eastwood
Eddie = Edward Norton
Susannah = Hayden Panettiere
Young Roland = Jensen Ackles (Dean on Supernatural, the MOST AWESOME SHOW EVER!)
Jake = A fresh face, 8-12 y.o.
Flagg = Sir Ian McKellen

The Talisman is such an awesome novel! Too bad they`re gonna ruin it. That book was too long and there was too much crazy stuff going on for them to be able to make a decent movie.

coranthulle, are you serious about that casting? Jim Carey? BEYONCE?! That woman couldn`t act her way out of a wet paper bag and you want her to play Susan?

I am really excited that they`re making a movie out of one of my very favorite novels, but so far I`m not too thrilled with the casting. Jack is supposed to be much younger and Lilly (the mom) is supposed to be an aging beauty queen actress. The clip didn`t do the story any justice, but who knows? The film as a whole might redeem itself.

coranthulle, I would love to see The Dark Tower series made movie, with Peter Jackson as the director, but John Cusak as Roland??? NO WAY!! Even Stephen King suggested Clint Eastwood, and I know he`s getting old, but at least someone like him!

Anyway, this trailer thing SUCKS! I love the book, but that acting is sh*t! And his mom is supposed to be pretty (albeit extremely thin).

Coran, when I went to look at this it had 19 comments ;) I think Harrison Ford should play Roland, and Halle Berry should be Susannah, Beyonce is too smiley to play Odetta

I actually enjoyed the Mist. His movies are very hit or miss. Either you love at least one or two or hate them all.

The acting got to me.. but the cinematography was pretty interesting.

This isn`t all that promising to be honest, that kid seems rather irritating.

I`m kinda tired of everything Stephen king related since that awful movie "Mist" that I regretfully spent money to rent.

It was not `that` bad but the ending really ruinned the whole movie and I just wanted to kill someone after watching it.

sooooo close to the ultimate Stephen King books. I want the Dark Tower and I want it now. Looks like they got the Taheen down. Now all we need are the low men and the cantoi.

So any suggestions for the cast of the Dark Tower?

I have:

Roland = John Cusak
Eddie = Josh Halloway
Susannah = Beyonce
Jake = No one comes to mind as yet
Flagg = Jim Carey
Mordred = Dan Radcliffe

And the guy that did this clip should be set to do the full 7 part story.
