Oh.....MY.....GOD!!


That's great :w00t: ...except that I read yesterday :unsure: ...

Russell Crowe In The Role of Roland???

The Dark Tower's journey to the screen is going to make one helluva coffee table book. We can't recount its entire history here, but it's long. Instead, let's focus on where the Stephen King adaptation is at right now.

The last we heard, Javier Bardem was attached to play Roland. Producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer were overseeing Akiva Goldsman's work on the script. And it was going to be epic. An ambitious adaptation that sprawled across three films.

There have been some changes on the leading man front, however...

According to Deadline, Warner Bros. Pictures is about to get a script from Goldsman soon and it will evaluate how it wants to move forward.

Furthermore, Javier Bardem is out and the adaptation is now being pitched as a vehicle for Russell Crowe to play Roland Deschain. That doesn't mean Crowe is a "lock" - it's just a possibility for now. We'll hear soon enough whether the studio will fly with the project or not.

Crowe stars in Warner Bros.' upcoming Superman movie Man of Steel and Paramount's Noah.

What would you think of Crowe as Roland? http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=93258



But I am VERY excited for it be on HBO! Thanks for the news! :thumbup:

Yeah, I don't know about Russell Crowe tbh....I think the Dark Tower would need someone unknown to the masses to play Roland. And besides, I don't see Russell Crowe as Roland Deschain...even if he wasn't a big star already.

aside from Javier Bardem being a little short, i thought he'd be perfect as Roland. oh well..

Please not Crowe. He's a fine actor but is not Roland. The best thing would probably to have an unknown and surround him with a cast of known supporting actors..

I typically picture Roland as a younger Clint Eastwood. Someone kind of hard with cold cold eyes. Russell crowe, not so much.

Everyone that comes to mind is too soft.

Perfect. If he had another 10-15 years on him, even better.

Amaury Nolasco was the one I was trying to think of the other day though. I just couldn't remember the actor's name and didn't want to go down the (the guy from Prison Break) road.
