Hi Bryan Here…
Javier Bardem will play Roland Deschain, the Gunslinger in a new adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” series. The studio is looking to make this film a trilogy with a tv series running in between the film series. Javier Bardem will play Roland in both the big screen and small. All this according to Deadline.
Ron Howard will be doing this epic project, but no other casting is yet to be heard of as of now. I think Javier Bardem is the perfect man to play this role. I keep going back to Javier’s role in “No Country For Old Men” where he played Anton Chigur. A ultra violent man who has no remorse or pity for anyone. I think this will play well into the Deschain role.
I do hope that this epic tale will get a mega budget treatment. It deserves it.
