    no way this doesn't suck. the story is too big to ever be told in a typical Hollywood movie....always hoped it would get picked up by HBO and get a few seasons to tell everything.

    Meh, it's not as if Stephen King's work is sacrosanct. He's had shitty movie adaptations in the past.

    I think it would be better if they reversed the roles, McConnahey as the gunslinger and Address Elbow as the man in black. I doubt Detta Walker will be a foul mouthed racist as well. They'll fuck the story up and make it PC.

    I don't mind Elba as Roland, but I'm curious what they do with the Detta-Roland storyline, since so much of her hate for Roland was because he was white.

    Found out days ago, too tired to bitch. Don't even care anymore. Roland is explicitly described as white but ok.

    Not like I wanted to see it on the big screen in an accurate portrayal or anything, that would have been lame diversity is better

    Roles reversed would be meh. I like the black dude as the man in black but would like someone else besides mcconahay as Roland.

    Wonder if detta will be white

    Detta being white would enable the racism that's in the book and it's white on black racism which is ok in Hollywood.
