JAVIER BARDEM COULD BE ROLAND DESCHAIN IN STEPHEN KING'S FANTASY SAGA "THE DARK TOWER". CHARMING TEASER FOR "KUNG FU PANDA: THE KABOOM OF DOOM". FINCHER'S "20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA" WILL BE 3D

Now here's another actor who is on the list for the role of futuristic hero Roland Deschain in Ron Howard's adaptation of Stephen King's fantasy saga THE DARK TOWER: although it was said that Viggo Mortensen is director's first choice it seems Javier Bardem is now the front-runner for the huge role.
If he gets it he will play in three films and two seasons of TV show which will run in between films. This futuristic epic Western will follow a Gunslinger Roland Deschain as he travels across a desolate and vaguely post-apocalyptic landscape in his quest for a black tower.

David Fincher, who is enjoying the success of his film THE SOCIAL NETWORK, has announced that his future project, the adaptation of the famous novel 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA will be done in 3D.
However, the film won't come any time soon since he has many other projects on his list.


Although we haven't been overly amazed by the first part of the film, KUNG FU PANDA: THE KABOOM OF DOOM is about to premiere next May and here's the first teaser: Po is now living his dream as The Dragon Warrior, protecting the Valley of Peace alongside his friends and fellow kung fu masters, The Furious Five - Tigress, Crane, Mantis, Viper and Monkey. But Po's new life of awesomeness is threatened by the emergence of a formidable villain, who plans to use a secret, unstoppable weapon to conquer China and destroy kung fu. It is up to Po and The Furious Five to journey across China to face this threat and vanquish it. But how can Po stop a weapon that can stop kung fu? He must look to his past and uncover the secrets of his mysterious origins - only then will he be able to unlock the strength he needs to succeed.

  3. Panda 2 is going to be fun, but I'm worried that it'll go the way of Pirates in that the star becomes bigger than the movie, you know? Still, it'll be an enjoyable movie :) Happy New Year, Dez :D

  4. I can seriously see Fincher wanting to film 20,000 LEAGUES in 3D and I have no problem with that because the man knows how to put all of that on the screen visually.

  5. Still think Viggo would be awesome in that role. And the first trailer in the theater for Kung Fu Panda 2 wasn't impressive, but then it really didn't show anything.

  6. That's a handsome pic of Bardem, Dezzy. I'm not as crazy about him as a lot of ladies are, but I just saw him on Leno the other day and he seems like an affable guy. I haven't read the book but I'd love to see Viggo in the role.

    Anyway, HAPPY NEW YEAR, Dezzy! Stay fabulous!

  7. What a choice between Viggo & Javier. They're so different--will be interesting to see who ends up w/ the role.

    Kung Fu Panda 2 looks cute -- of course! :)

    I totally share you worries, Jamie, they are just milking the main character.
    Happy New Year to you as well and to all the good people in Wales! ;)

    @Jaccsy
    glad to see you all excited Jaccsy :))

    @Alex
    well, Vigo, might get the role, nothing is for sure. Yep, the trailer shows absolutely nothing :)

    indeed it is, but I have an extremely naughty pic of Javier as well but I'm saving it for some more indecent occasion :) I'm also indifferent towards him, and I don't like his wife Penelope Cruz :)
    Will do, Flixy, wishing the same to you!

    @Lisa
    it is an unusual choice. But I'm voting for Vigo if Hugh Jackman doesn't get the job :)

  11. Javier and Viggo? Both such good actors. And I could watch them grout tile and be enthralled. Am also very intrigued by 20,000 Leagues being done in 3D. Totally cool.

  12. Wow, Dark Tower, so exciting...I will have to reread it. 20,000 in 3D, interesting!

    Time will tell on the Stephen King flick~

    Happy New Year Dezzy, wishing you the best for 2011!

  13. When it does finally come round I think 20,000 will be awesome. Dark Tower sounds great though I too would have preferred viggo for that role, but Javier I stil happily settle for.

    Happy new year Dezz, all the best, I sent you an e-mail today so hope you got it.

    @Liz
    didn't know you were such a fan of Javier and Viggo :)

    @Ella
    thanks Ella, wishing all the best to you as well in 2011!

    @Dempsey
    I'd prefer Hugh Jackman over Viggo and Javier :P
    I got it and sent you a reply :)

  16. yep, but only next summer, the waiting will be long :)

  17. Yeah, definitely looking forward to The Dark Tower. And who can say no to another edition of Jack Black in a Panda suit?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Now, Eric, did you really have to mention Jack Black here :))

    ReplyDelete
  19. Are you kidding? I'm a HUGE Jack Black fan. I didn't used to be, but I've come to really appreciate his comic ability. I'm even looking forward to seeing him in that movie about the little people (where he's the giant, sorry - name escapes me at the moment).
