Golden Globe winner Aaron Paul, “Jesse Pinkman” from Breaking Bad, said recently that he has had “a bunch of meetings” with Ron Howard about the Stephen King series.
Nerdist also reported that the goal may be to make three films and one television series in between.
Here’s what Paul said at the Sundance Film Festival:
“I’ve had a ton of meetings on that. I just had a general sit down with Ron Howard…They’re definitely planning on making it. I’m excited. Their goal is to do three films but also have a television element to it, which will be very interesting. From what I hear, Eddie Dean is a pretty epic, iconic character.”
Last we were told about a Dark Tower adaptation, Javier Bardem was rumored to be playing the lead of Roland Deschain, but then Universal nixed the project and Howard said he took a “vow of silence” on the project.
So: What do you think? Did Paul spill the beans and is the lofty project back on? What do you think of Paul in the series?
