It's a race to the top of the tower! Many leading actors like Hugh Jackman, Daniel Craig, and Jon Hamm want the role of Roland Deschain in Ron Howard's film adaptation of The Dark Tower book series by Stephen King. But it seems the real contest is between Javier Bardem and Viggo Mortensen.
Sources claim Bardem is in the top spot to win the coveted role. But that doesn't mean the others are out.
According to Page Six, "agents are tripping over themselves to land their clients coveted roles in what promises to be a blockbuster film and television franchise."
There are three movies planned for the seven part book series, as well as a TV franchise to air between each film. Universal Pictures announced it's set to release the first film on May 17, 2013.
So who's it gonna be? Who do you want to see in the lead role?
