    As much as I would like to believe that it sounds like a minor league company trying to get their name mentioned. The only positive to this getting blown up is that maybe someone will scale it down to an HBO series. I think, as far as budget, Dark Tower is far more workable than Game of Thrones.

    Media Rights Capital Close To Distributing Ron Howard’s Ambitious Adaptation Of ‘The Dark Tower’ | Geeks of Doom

    Ok, here's a link to that story Big Brown. Maybe they aren't a bottom feeder, just never heard of them.

    According to Deadline, “MRC’s Modi Wiczyk is a big fan of the Stephen King novel series,” and the company is eager to capitalize on the positive momentum they got from developing and financing the Seth MacFarlane-directed summer sleeper hit Ted with Mark Wahlberg. The studio’s next major film release will be Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium with Matt Damon.

    Of all the studios that The Dark Tower could have gone to, it’s likely that it will get distributed by MRC, now that’s quite surprising to hear since the two studios that passed on the film are much more high profile studios than MRC. Still this news has to put a tiny smile on Howard’s face as the report says that a deal is likely to be made soon.

    Also, a small bit of irony, MRC has a distribution deal with Universal. But there is no word yet on whether or not Universal will distribute the movie if MRC does pick up The Dark Tower.

    Ok, lol, I am going to go the kickstart route to get this off the ground and hire JD to direct it, but only if he agrees to have a Ramones song in it.

    Honestly, this does have the potential of being a gold mine. WB should hire that dude who directed the last few Potter movies, start with a modest budget for the first film, and take it from there.

    Sinister’s Director And Producer Reunite For Adaptation Of Stephen King’s The Breathing Method | Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    The Breathing Method will be the final story in Stephen King’s four-part anthology Different Seasons to see a large screen adaptation. The three other ‘seasons’ in the book were Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, which of course became The Shawshack Redemption, The Body, which was brought to the screen under the title Stand By Me, and Apt Pupil, which was adapted in 1998 with Ian McKellen and Brad Renfro.

    While the combination of Scott Derrickson and Stephen King might seen like an obvious choice, The Breathing Method only fits marginally within the horror genre; like the stories mentioned above, it is better described as a drama with a few gruesome elements. Said gruesome elements can’t be revealed without spoiling the end, so for now let’s just say that it’s about a woman who is determined to give birth to the illegitimate child that she is carrying, even in the face of society’s judgement and her own financial problems.

    I gots to reread that story, read it too long ago and I'm concerned because there is almost no recollection of it. I saw Sinister last weekend so I will hold my thoughts on that to the last movie watched thread.

    I guess I'll have to move it up on my pile of unread books so I can get to it sooner. Not sure how much it needs an R rating, but The Stand and It worked well enough on network television.
