J.J. Abrams, Damon Lindelof To Adapt Stephen King’s ‘The Dark Tower’ After ‘Lost’ Is Over

FROM MOVIES BLOG: Just as there are whispers in the jungles of “Lost,” there have likewise been whispers in Hollywood that J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof — two of the masterminds behind that ABC television series — have been working on an adaptation of Stephen King’s classic “The Dark Tower” series. Now, those whispers are getting louder… and a lot more insistent.

“Damon Lindelof and I talked to Mr. King,” Abrams told IGN while promoting the upcoming “Star Trek” film. “We got the rights for [’Dark Tower’] as a film. Damon is obviously still on ’Lost’ and we’ve been working on ’Star Trek’ together. As soon as ’Lost’ is done, hopefully we’ll begin tackling that.”
