Dark Tower Movie in the Works?

Now this is exciting for me.... Forever Geek dug up that JJ Abrams to direct King's Dark Tower. The Dark Tower is a fantastic seven book series from Stephen King that has been on my own internal version of the 10 best movies never made.

It's also scary to me, because unless this is a 30 or 40 hour movie they are never going to capture the book properly. Stephen King's It was an OK attempt to make a movie of one of King's best loved horror stories and it was 192 minutes.... 3.2 hours! Now remember that the dark tower series is a full seven stories of incrediable depth written over a period of over thirty years! So based on that this movie would have to be over 22 hours long :)

Guess we'll see what happens...
