Once upon a time, there were big, big plans for an adaptation of Stephen King‘s book series The Dark Tower. A trilogy of movies, joined by two seasons of an accompanying television series. But sometimes things don’t quite work out how they were planned.
We did eventually get a movie, but it fared poorly at the box office and even worse with critics. But the good news for fans of the books is that there is still a TV series in the works. The two just aren’t tied together anymore. The series is set up at Amazon, and now it appears that they have found their Gunslinger and Man in Black.
An official trailer for BlacKkKlansman, which is directed by Spike Lee and produced by Jordan Peele, was released this week by Focus Features.
The movie is based on the true story of the first African-American detective at the Colorado Springs Police Department and his mission to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan in the early ’70s. It stars John David Washington, Adam Driver, Topher Grace, Laura Harrier, Jasper PÃ¤Ã¤kkÃ¶nen, Robert John Burke, Corey Hawkins, and Ryan Eggold.
You can find a synopsis for BlacKkKlansman along with the trailer below.
