Ron Howard’s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower has set off a casting frenzy in Hollywood. Agents are tripping over themselves to land their clients coveted roles in what promises to be a blockbuster film (trilogy) and television franchise. Leading the pack for the principal character, Roland Deschain, is Javier Bardem (the scary dude in No Country for Old Men), with Viggo Mortensen a close second, sources tell the NY Post. Howard and screenwriter Akiva Goldsman have a deal with Universal that will translate into a TV show and three movies, all using the same cast. Brian Grazer will produce with Goldsman and King. According to reports, they plan to start with an epic movie, then continue the story with the TV series, followed by a second film, and then a second TV season showing gunslinger Deschain as a young man. Then, the third movie will end the saga with Deschain as an older man.
