Imagine this: Aaron Paul plays a drug addict and criminal who finds a fresh direction in life thanks to a confidant and clever mentor/father figure who urges him to kick the habit and join his cause. However, this journey his new associate takes him on, while offering many rewards, may also ultimately be his downfall.
That's a rough summary of the trials of Paul's Jesse Pinkman on AMC's 'Breaking Bad', but it might also describe the character of Eddie Dean in Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower' - a role that would seemingly fit the actor like a glove. But is he ready to tackle it? Find out after the break.
The Dark Tower
Though there had been rewrites and casting rumors, it looks like Warner Brothers has finally pulled the plug on their adaptation of 'The Dark Tower.' This comes after Universal passed, and Russell Crowe expressed interest in playing the lead.
Once upon a time there was a studio called Warner Bros who wanted to adapt Stephen King's famous 'Dark Tower' novel series. Months later, the collective fate of the possible movie and television franchise rests in their hands possibly with the aide of actor Russell Crowe.
After Universal passed on the Akiva Goldsman and Brian Grazer produced adaptation of Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower' due to budget worries, the fate of the three films (supplemented with two TV miniseries) seemed unclear. Even with names like Javier Bardem (as hero Roland Deschain) and Ron Howard attached, Universal passed. But could the film adaptation get a second chance?
