Rob Lowe in Salem's Lot + The Gunslinger details

Posted: February 25, 2003, 00:00
Rob Lowe has sign on to play Ben Mears in the remake of Salem's Lot and George Guidall will read The Dark Tower V.

As you all know Viking will reissue hardcover editions of the first four Dark Tower books. The first one, The Gunslinger will be revised and expanded. Due to this there have been many questions about what the extra stuff will be and why it has been added. Well, here is King's own explanation.

"Here's the scoop on the new material I've added to The Gunslinger. The idea was to bring The Gunslinger in line with the material in the new books as well as the material in the first four. The other thing I wanted to do was to rewrite to some degree for language because I always felt it had a different feel than the other books because I was so young when I wrote it. The material is about an additional 10% (about 35 manuscript pages) with changes on almost every page."

There will also be a new audio edition of The Gunslinger. No reader has been announced yet.
