Amazon will make a series of The Dark Tower even though the movie was a failure
Not even the great actors who starred in The Dark Tower could save the film from being a complete failure at the box office. Even Stephen King, the author of the series of novels on which it is based, acknowledges that it failed, but despite everything Amazon has just taken over the rights of the story to create a television series.
Maybe in this format they can do what the film could not: a good adaptation of King’s work.
