Though no official lead for Ron Howard’s adaptation of the Stephen King tale The Dark Tower has been announced, at least one possible candidate is in the right mindset. Whatever that means.
According to an MTV interview with producer Brian Grazer, “He’s locked in psychologically,” Grazer said of Bardem’s desire to play Roland Deschain, the Gunslinger. “He really wants to do it, so we’re absolutely rooting for him to do it.”
Ron Howard will direct the first of a potential trilogy that will also go multi-platform. Universal is aiming for a May 17, 2013 release. The books chronicle the mysterious The Gunslinger as he travels across a desolate and vaguely post-apocalyptic landscape in his quest for a black tower. Portals along the way eventually allow contact with our own modern world.
More as it comes.
