I have got to get caught up on my reading. Mr. Scruffy’s got “Hearts in Atlantis” on the nightstand and I’ve got “The Gunslinger” in progress on my Kindle. I’m excited to see Amazon’s take on this. Loved Jerome Flynn as Bronn.
Stephen King debuted The Dark Tower in 1982, kicking off an epic series of novels that spanned eight novels and three decades. The series blended horror, fantasy, and genre elements to create one of the author’s most beloved narratives. The storyline was loosely adapted into a film in 2017, though it failed to connect with critics nor audiences. Likely due to the amount of material that needed to be covered, the narrative faced many struggles, though a new series from Amazon aims to correct those issues with long-form storytelling. The series has reportedly recruited Game of Thrones star Jerome Flynn, who played Ser Bronn, for the adaptation.
Flynn himself revealed the news to Mirror, noting “I’ve always said I’d like to play a cowboy – and now one has come along. I’m excited for that.”
The actor joins previously confirmed Mindhunter star Sam Strike as main character Roland Deschain and Vikings star Jasper Pääkkönen in an unspecified role.
