Christian Bale Joining The Dark Tower?

We’ve heard that the 2 finalists for the role of Roland Deschain for Ron Howard’s The Dark Tower based on the novels by Stephen King were Javier Bardem and Viggo Mortensen. Now the New York Post has thrown out a new and very interesting name to the mix; Golden Globe winner and Academy Award nominee Christian Bale!

I am surprised that Bale would want to take this role on if this is true. There have been rumblings that he wants to do singular films instead of the franchise films after being part of Batman over the years. The Dark Tower if successful would require Bale to make 3 Feature Films as well as one season of television.

I always thought of Viggo Mortenson as Roland Deschain and was not in favor of Bardem but if this rumor is true than I am behind it 1000%! Bale is one of our best actors and he’s no stranger to the Western genre, he was great in the remake of 3:10 To Yuma.

The Post is also reporting that Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter) is up for the role of Susannah
