Is Liam Neeson Interested In 'Gunslinger' Role In Ron Howard's THE DARK TOWER?
The Schmoes' "Phantom" scooper is back with some exciting news..this time revolving around the long gestating adaptation of Stephen King's hugely popular series of fantasy/horror novels. He reckons Neeson is interested in a role, and it's likely the lead role of Roland "The Gunslinger" Deschain.
Earlier today we reported that Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul has had a "ton of meetings" regarding the role of Eddie Dean in Ron Howard's take on The Dark Tower. Now obviously if actors are taking meetings, that means there's finally some movement on the ambitious movie/tv crossover adaptation, so The Schmoes did some digging and turned up the following.
"Ron Howard is going to make this with MRC and Imagine for around 60 million or so. And he’s likely doing this next. There’s going to be a TV series as well since it’s MRC and I’m thinking it may end up being at Netflix."
Oh, and one more thing: he hears Liam Neeson is interested. Now he didn't elaborate, so we're just assuming it's for the lead role of Roland Dechain..after all there aren't really any other main roles Neeson could play. That's all we got for now - but The Schmoes have been on point with their scoops thus far so expect to hear something further on all things Dark Tower pretty soon. For now, could anyone possibly have a problem with Neeson playing Roland?
