    Hmmm despite how good many of Kings books are, they always seem to make a hash of them when translating to film barring a few exceptions, hopefully they wont with these. The film version of the stand was ok, but Harold looked nothing like the book version & the ending was poorly done!

    Let me throw in a vote here for Gary Busey as the Tick-Tock Man in the Wastelands. And I've already said we need Eastwood to play Roland's daddy and Jamey Sheridan to return as Randy Flagg.

    Eastwood is too old for that part surely... His father is going to be around 40-50? Not 70-80?



    Maybe 20yrs ago, but not now surely?

    What's the issue in making his dad a bit older?

    I don't really see that having any huge impact on it. Plus, it's freaking Clint Eastwood.

    Because Roland is about 15... So his dad conceived him then when he was about 60... Which suggests this old gun slinger was firing blanks for a long time before he found a live round! It would also place his mother as being 25yrs or so younger than his father, which is unusual!

    Who is going to play King? Do you think he'd do himself? Or too old to play himself now?

    Sorry, have to agree with the clang here, I'm just not seeing it. Not grizled and hard bitten enough by a long shot.

    How are they going to deal with Odetta Holmes and her lack of legs? I suspect - excuse the pun - they'll chop that out, and she'll have legs. It seems to add nothing to the plot really...

    Also interested on how they handle the demon scene involving her!
