SF SATURDAY: SAM STRIKE IS ROLAND DESCHAIN IN AMAZON'S THE DARK TOWER STEPHEN KING SF SERIES! KRYPTON SF SERIES SEASON 2 TRAILER IS HERE!

SAM STRIKE TO LEAD
THE DARK TOWER SF SERIES
Sam Strike will be the young Deschain!
I'm a bit late with this one, but according to this week's news, Amazon has cast young Sam Strike as the lead star of their THE DARK TOWER fantasy series which is getting a pilot order even though the movie version was a rather big flop two years ago. He will play famous gunslinger Roland Deschain in the small screen adaptation of Stephen King's famous sf saga. As Deadline reports, it will be independent from the film and is meant to be a more faithful retelling of the book than the movie was. The story should take place many years before the events in the film focusing on Roland Deschain’s origin story – how he first became a gunslinger and got his guns, his first conflict with the man in black, his first love and his first mission as a gunslinger. As another addition to the cast, Jasper Pääkkönen has been cast as Marten, a man Roland is out to kill.

  1. This series seems to have something for everyone: fantasy, SF, violence.
    The leading actor looks very young for his role as a gunlinger, but who knows, he might do his part well after all.

    1. Hope it won't be as bad as the movie was. Krypton was, meanwhile, shot here in my country.

  2. I didn't watch that shit show of a movie when it came out. I cannot stand it when they stray too far from the original story. I see they are remaking Pet Semetary and from the preview, it looks like they strayed way off of that book too. At least it sounds like they might stick closer to the book in this series, so maybe the audience might be more accepting to tun in there.

    1. Yes, they say the series will stick more closely to the book and it will obviously have a teen factor, and that's a bait for younger audience. I wouldn't mind watching this blond boy on a weekly basis :) Especially as he is British!
