After some announcements that studio executives wanted Javier Bardem in the iconic role of Roland Deschain for the 2013 adaption of The Dark Tower
A well-placed source confirmed to Page Six, “Bardem has signed on to the first movie and the miniseries, but the intention is that he will star in all three movies and each of the TV series.
It’s an enormous deal for any actor, but Bardem was
always the first choice.”
So they got an oscar winning actor to play in a TV-series as well.
I hope this well placed source is not the same source that has brought us all those Black Mask insider infos about The Dark Knight Rises.
Anyway, this project might really be happening (I still cannot really believe that), so I’d urge all of you to read at least the first (300 pages) novel “The Gunslinger” of The Dark Tower to get your own image of this bizare and unique world by Stephen King!
Long days and pleasant nights
