Fans of Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” series are going to be happy about this. According to Deadline, the first film in the series is moving forward at Sony. The script comes to us from Akiva Goldsman and is said to be the first in a series with a “complimentary TV series” on the way as well. Javier Bardem and Russell Crowe are names being discussed as potential casting for the lead role.

King said in a statement, “I’m excited that” The Dark Tower” is finally going to appear on the screen. Those who have traveled with Roland and his friends in their search for the Dark Tower are going to have their long-held hopes fully realized. This is a brilliant and creative approach to my books.”

The “[easyazon_link identifier=”0451211243″ locale=”US” tag=”legoflei07-20″]Dark Tower[/easyazon_link]” series began with “The Gunslinger” in 1982 and is ongoing with the most recent book, “The Wind Through the Keyhole” appearing on shelves in 2012.
