‘The Dark Tower’ movie is officially a sequel to the books, which most guessed already

Apparently, most fans of the Dark Tower books suspected that the upcoming movie was a sequel to the series. Well, now it’s like official or something get stoked or something I don’t give a fuck! I have no emotional investment in this upcoming train wreck.


Ever since a tweet of a very important prop was posted to Twitter last summer, fans have assumed that the upcoming Dark Tower movie is a sequel to the books. And now, the film’s director has confirmed that.

“It is, in fact, a continuation,” director Nik Arcel told IGN. “It is a canon continuation. That’s exactly what we intended and what Stephen King has signed off on.”


To explain why that horn and text is so important, it’s necessary to spoil the ending of King’s series. So if you are planning on reading the books before The Dark Tower is out in August (which I recently did) you may want to go away. But if not, keep reading. Just know that the movie has been structured and conceived so it’s not necessary to have any knowledge of the books, which also fits in with the world.
