Roland/Dark Tower in The Mist [Nov. 25th, 2007|12:23 pm]
All Things Serve the Beam


I went to go see The Mist last night. My jaw dropped when the very first shot in the movie is a shot of the lead working on a painting of Roland standing in front of a free-standing door with a tower in the background. The character was specifically working on a rose that was to the viewer's right of Roland.
It was unmistakably Roland and the Dark Tower.

Later, the character makes reference to the fact that he was painting a movie poster. I wonder if this is a hint about the potential Dark Tower movie.....

woo hoo I hope!

Someone posted in here or another of the roland forums a long while back (before they made a movie of The Mist) that the scientists had opened a rift into todash space in the story. Still makes sense to me.

I just saw it, and freaked out so bad at that picture that my boyfriend had to pat my hand to calm me down.
Anyone else in favor of Thomas Jane playing Roland? (personally, I'm anti-DT movie all together, but if they just HAVE to make it...)

I just saw The Mist tonight too! Not sure I liked it overall (though the ending was pretty astounding!), but the Dark Tower paintings were cool!

In the background there was one that looked like a little boy standing next to a rose and I thought of Jake but assumed that I was mistaken, until I saw that he was painting Roland. What do you suppose was the one in the background that looked like a person with a bright light where their head should be?

I SO have to see this now. I've wanted to since I heard it was coming, but with the DT reference. I HAVE to see it! :D
