And, as if the Amazon Studios deal wasn’t already a suggestion that Flanagan couldn’t refuse, the information that such an adaptation is lastly occurring is a surefire signal that Flanagan made the precise alternative.

Teaming up with Trevor Macy’s Intrepid Pictures, which was a part of the joint deal between him and Amazon Studios, Flanagan will little doubt be getting straight to work on his beloved ardour venture, which he envisions will span 5 complete seasons of content material, in addition to a handful of options.

Indeed, in an interview with Deadline, Flanagan was all too completely happy to disclose that he’s acquired the rights to Stephen King’s magnum opus, and if his previous efforts in adapting literary horror, to say nothing of his widely-known love of The Dark Tower, is something to go by, then we may very properly be in for the form of deal with that may cleanse our reminiscence of a sure 2017 movie for good.

Predating our take care of Amazon, we acquired the rights to The Dark Tower, which if something about me, it has been my Holy Grail of a venture for many of my life. We even have these rights carved out of our Amazon deal, which doesn’t imply that they will’t or gained’t get behind it in some unspecified time in the future — you don’t know. But that’s one thing we’ve been creating ourselves and are actually enthusiastic about lastly getting it up on its ft in some unspecified time in the future.

Prior to signing an unique take care of Amazon Studios, Flanagan was one in every of Netflix’s heaviest hitters, having been answerable for such horror hits as The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, Midnight Mass, and the recently-canceled The Midnight Club.

He’ll be sorely missed by viewers for sure, however not all is misplaced simply but; Flanagan nonetheless has yet one more miniseries within the Netflix pipeline, particularly The Fall of the House of Usher, so Netflix subscribers will nonetheless have the ability to catch yet one more whiff of Flanagan earlier than he units off for Prime Video completely.
