Stephen King's eight-volume epic The Dark Tower once again could be hitting the big and small screen with Russell Crowe taking over the role of gunslinger "Roland Deschain" from Javier Bardem.
Last year, director Ron Howard was set to take on King's ambitious story that blends elements of sci-fi, fantasy, horror and westerns in what would become three movies and two limited run television series. With studios tightening their belt on budgets as of late, Universal Pictures ultimately cancelled the project forcing Howard and his producing partner Brian Grazer to shop the movie to other studios. Back in March we reported Warner Bros' interest in taking on the project with actor Javier Bardem still attached to star, but not much has been heard about the movie since...until now.
According to Deadline, Warner Bros is set to make a final decision whether they will be committing to the grand endeavor, but with Crowe now starring. No word what prompted the exit of Bardem and no formal offer has been made to Crowe, but the studio is making their determination based on his planned involvement. Crowe has seen his star power fade a bit over the past few years, but is set to star in two big upcoming movies - as Jor-El in the Superman reboot Man of Steel and as Noah in director Darren Aronofsky's big budget telling of the biblical flood.
As for the TV series that will help bridge the gap between the first and second and second and third films, HBO is reportedly in discussions to handle the television side of things. This definitely seems like it has potential to be a HUGE project, but do you think it could be too big a risk for the studio or do you really want to see gunslinger Deschain finally make it onto the big screen?
