Liam Neeson and Aaron Paul in Talks for Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower”
During the Sundance Film Festival, “Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul confirmed that he’s had “a ton of meetings” with director Ron Howard about playing the character Eddie Dean in the upcoming film / TV series adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower.”
“I just had a general sit down [about ‘The Dark Tower’] with Ron Howard, who is a huge fan of [‘Breaking Bad’]. They’re definitely planning on making it," he explained. "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.”
Meanwhile, others are reporting that Liam Neeson is also in talks to star in “The Dark Tower,” possibly as the lead character Roland Deschain. Stay tuned.

Im really happy about this, but I still think it’s really sad that they don’t plan doing at least 8 movies.
