Stephen King is hot property right now with adaptations hitting cinemas, Netflix and the rest. He writes such in depth and epic series that it’s easy to see why they’re picked up for adaptation and now it looks like Dark Tower, a popular book and recent movie adaptation may well be getting a new chapter!
Recently, a fan of the Dark Tower series asked the author at a Q&A if there would be any more from the Dark Tower series. The ‘final’ book in the series came in 2004, and fans have been wanting more ever since. Several years later followed The Wind in the Keyhole, a prequel story and that was popular too.
In the exchange King says ‘Yes, I think that might happen.’, which is a pretty good sign there’s more to come! Specifically the fan asks King if he’d do ‘The Battle of Jericho’, which fans will know is another story that takes place in the history of Roland, before the timeline of the books.
While the movie wasn’t a big hit with King fans, the book series is huge with massive fan groups around the world. News that there is possibly a new book coming will be music to their ears, you can hear it from the King himself in the clip below.
