Waaaay back in May, we learned that a film based on Stephen King's Dark Tower series was in the works!
Now, almost a year later, wheels are moving, and No Country For Old Men/Biutiful star Javier Bardem is closing a deal to star in the film as gunslinger Roland Deschain.
For those of you who aren't familiar with the character/series, Deschain is "humanity’s last hope to save civilization," and he encounters peril on his way to
Mount Doom The Dark Tower!
Fans of Bardem will be excited to hear that the deal he's working on will not only attach him to a trilogy of films, BUT will also attach him to a "TV component"
and lots and lots of $$$.
As we've said before, we're not TOO familiar with the Dark Tower series, but we know that it has a fan-base that's totally obsessed! We're excited for them.
Do U think Javier Bardem is right for the lead character in The Dark Tower series?
