If any of this is true, it'll be subtle, as we all know how the Dark Tower ends. Unless...

Anthony Hopkins really wanted to do a Stephen King film. He was offered Hearts In Atlantis and accepted without even seeing a script. When he got the script he accepted again after reading only half of the script. His acting in this film is as good as anything he has ever done.

Anthony Hopkins on wanting to do a Stephen King film:

@ 16 seconds:



Spoiler if you've never seen the film or read The Dark Tower novels:

Hearts In Atlantis is an excellent adaptation. The story connects to Stephen King's Dark Tower universe, however, the film works well on its own and doesn't require the viewer to have knowledge of those novels. Anthony Hopkins' acting in this film is first class. He plays Ted Brautigan who is a Breaker from the Dark Tower novels and is being sought by the Low Men so they can take him back and use him and his powerful ability to bring down The Dark Tower. The film doesn't spell this out as it focuses on Ted and Robert "Bobby" Garfield's relationship and Bobby's friends. Ted employs Bobby to read to him and to keep an eye out for the Low Men.

Of all the Stephen King adaptations, I'd place Hearts In Atlantis in joint first position with The Green Mile and The Shawshank Redemption. It really is that good.

Stephen King's 11/22/63 turns 10.



This is from The New York Times review, November 10, 2011 (If you haven't read the novel, don't read that review):

"It all adds up to one of the best time-travel stories since H. G. Wells."



I couldn't agree more with that NYT quote!
