Lindelof talks Stephen King's Dark Tower

He's waiting for Lost to be done...

Lost head honcho Damon Lindelof has had the rights to adapt Stephen King's Dark Tower series for a while now, but it's never been clear how he'll do it.

Would he turn the books into a TV series? A film? An interpretative dance?

Now we know and it's the medium we were hoping for - film. And not just one film, but seven. It's a big task, so he'll have to finish Lost first.

"The Dark Tower is to me every bit as daunting an adaptation as the Lord of the Rings trilogy must have been for Peter Jackson, except we've got seven books we're looking at. And the idea of doing that at the same time Carlton and I are bringing Lost to a close is simply not viable," Lindelof said to amctv.

"There are always Dark Tower conversations, but the figuring out of what this will look like as a movie has not begun. If The Dark Tower were in the right hands, I would love to see seven movies executed just right. But you have to get people to see the first one to get them to come and see the second one."
