“The Dark Tower” could star Russell Crowe


Posted by on

We’ll soon be finding out for sure whether Warner Bros. is going to take on Ron Howard and Brian Grazer’s ambitious adaptation of “The Dark Tower.”

The duo has long planned to adapt Stephen King’s epic series by making three films that are tied together with two TV series, and originally had the project set up at Universal. But when the studio dropped the adaptation, it was Warner Bros. who came to the rescue. Now sources are telling Deadline that Warner Bros. is close to making a decision on the project since Akiva Goldsman has turned in his latest draft for the script of the first film. Fingers crossed.

In other exciting news, it turns out that Russell Crowe is currently the top choice to play main character Roland Deschain. Javier Bardem had long been attached to the role, but Deadline reports that he has since left the project. Crowe should be just as capable as Bardem in bringing depth to the character, and it’s clear that this means Warner liked what Crowe did in Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel.” We’re sad to see Bardem go, but we have enough to be excited about with him now that we’ve seen that new “Skyfall” trailer.

This is an ambitious venture, and one we really hope Warner Bros. makes. Now that Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy has wrapped, the studio could use another big franchise. Peter Jackson at least is making a third “The Hobbit” film, but “The Dark Tower” could follow it as being Warner’s next big fantasy franchise.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
