Not long ago, Stephen King shared a teaser photo from The Dark Tower that hinted at a potentially huge game-changer for the long-developing film adaptation. The TL;DR version: It’s not an adaptation, necessarily, but a sequel. To explain exactly why that is would be to get into book spoiler territory, so I’ll save that for later in this post.
