Daniel Craig & Hugh Jackman Up for 'The Dark Tower'

Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman are being considered for Ron Howard‘s upcoming movie based on Stephen King‘s famous creation The Dark Tower!

The project has yet to be green-lit but Ron says he “really can’t stop thinking about it.”

“We’ve been meeting and talking and I’ve been reading and researching and just kind of living with it,” he told the Los Angeles Times.

In addition to Hugh and David, who starred together in Broadway’s A Steady Rain, Ron says Jon Hamm has been mentioned for the role of Roland the Gunslinger.

“On The Dark Tower fansites they’re all about Viggo [Mortensen],” he added.

The film is targeted for a release in 2013, followed by a television series, a second movie, the continuation of the TV series, and then the final film in the trilogy.
