The closest “connection” I’ve had to THE DARK TOWER is the 2007 comicbook adaptation by Marvel, featuring art by Jae Lee (I was there for Jawe Lee :p). I’ve neither read nor adored the novels by Stephen King, so do pardon me if I’ve not been too “johhny-on-the-spot” with posting the trailer (which launched May 3rd) … BUT, I have some TOY-NEWS for you tho!
