Christian Bale Front-Runner for Lead in The Dark Tower

Though he’s met with some HEAVY competition for the role, it looks as if The Dark Knight is the new front-runner for The Dark Tower. A good choice if you ask us.

According to The New York Post sources say Christian Bale has pulled ahead of Javier Bardem and Viggo Mortensen as Ron Howard and Stephen King’s choice for The Dark Tower‘s main character, gunslinger Roland Deschain.

The Post previously reported that Howard’s adaptation of King’s books has set off a casting frenzy with agents battling to land their clients roles in what promises to be a blockbuster franchise. A source said “Dexter” star Jennifer Carpenter is rising on the short list for the role of Susannah, as is French/Moroccan Ghita Tazi.

Look for more as it breaks.
