The NY Post is reporting that Pirates of the Caribbean beauty Naomie Harris is being considered for the female lead in the Ron Howard’s eagerly anticipated The Dark Tower trilogy. No other info is available. The Stephen King-penned books chronicle the mysterious The Gunslinger as he travels across a desolate and vaguely post-apocalyptic landscape in his quest for a black tower. Portals along the way eventually allow contact with our own modern world. Universal Pictures plans to release the first of three films on May 17, 2013. A TV show tie-in is also planned.
