A few days back Aimee, who’s always lurking in our comments section, posted a link to news that Emmy winner Aaron Paul dreams of taking on the role of Eddie Dean (reformed junkie turned gunslinger) in the adaptation of Stephen Kings, The Dark Tower.
Aaron, well known for his parts in Breaking Bad and HBO’s Big Love, responded “Trust me. HUGE dream of mine” to a fans tweet, “if theres a Dark Tower movie you gotta promise me you’ll play eddie dean.” If you reckon Aaron would be perfect for the part of Eddie then you’re not alone as even Damon Lindelof thinks he “…would be the best Eddie ever.”
Of course, we’re still yet to find out if the movie will be made at all.
Last we heard, Warner Bros dropped out of the running and Media Rights Capital are rumored to be interested in taking over the reigns. There’s still no official word and with Ron Howard knee deep in editing his upcoming Formula 1 movie, Rush, we’re unlikely to hear much till next year.
A big thanks to Aimee for posting the link to CinemaBlend.com who discovered the original tweets.
