From the outside looking in, it sure doesn't SEEM like he's giving a lot of priority to making it happen. He's continually doing other projects, like that racing film "Rush" coming out now....he might just have to sink several years of his life into it, to make it happen. Like Jackson did with LoTR....he did nothing else in that 3-4 year timespan....didn't start working on King Kong until LoTR was virtually wrapped...

Now having read them, I'm not sure I can even picture it as a movie. You'd need at least one film per book.

And, I'd probably hate it anyway.

They initally had a VERY ambitious plan for it....3 movies, with two TV mini-series in the interims between #1 and 2, and #2 and 3...that scope probably scared off the big studios...

I wonder if it may do better as more of a series on HBO or something. 1 season per book - you'd get like 10 or 12 hours to get it right.

Well apparently Howard appreciates the specialness of the work....it just tries fans' patience hm

I agree - the movies- while i'll see them and be excited - i'll prob be a bit disappointed.  I think it could be better suited as a tv series. by the RIGHT writers. none of these 'under the dome" writers.
And King would have to remain 300 feet away from the set at all times. 36
