Dark Tower Cast Within a Week

Seems the progress to bring The Dark Tower series to life on the big and small screens is closer than we think. As it stands they plan to have cast in place by next week!

Live for Films reports:

MTV spoke to producer Brian Grazer who mentioned that there would be news on the casting soon.

“Within a week,” he said. “Seriously. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Seriously.”

Howard has spoken about his plans for the films and TV. “Right now what we’re talking about is a movie and six or eight hours of television to bridge. My plan is to do most of those TV hours, if not all, and certainly the movies.”

They are planning to present this as a movie series, but not all books will get the big screen treatment. The intention is to bridge some of the other books with TV miniseries to complete the cycle.

Its a bold undertaking and something I could see done if handled right. But also something that is going to take a long while! To find a known actor who will take on the role of Roland for that extended period might be good job security, but also limits the other jobs they can potentially take.

Do you think they will get Javier Bardem or Viggo Mortensen as reported to be front runners for the role?

I vote Viggo myself.
