Warner Bros. Moving Ahead With THE DARK TOWER. Javier Bardem Out; Russell Crowe In

There has been talk of a big screen adaptation of Stephen King's epic The Dark Tower trilogy for a while, but Warner Bros. is now in the process of getting a new script from Akiva Goldsman, while Russell Crowe is in talks to replace Javier Bardem as Roland Deschain.


Deadline reports that Warner Bros. have tasked with Akiva Goldsman with turning in a new script for them for the first instalment in the big screen adaptation of Stephen King's epic The Dark Tower series. The studio will apparently make a final decision as to whether or not they will give the film the green light within the next two weeks, despite it reportedly being, "the first leg of one of the most daring and ambitious projects to come along since The Lord of the Rings". And that's not all. Despite Javier Bardem previously being pegged for the leading role of gunslinger Roland Deschain, director Ron Howard and producers Brian Grazer and Goldsman are now in talks with Man of Steel's Russell Crowe. There is currently no deal in place, while the plan to tell the nine-volume story through three films and two limited run TV series remains.
