Los Angeles: Actor Aaron Paul is in talks with filmmaker Ron Howard for a role in the screen adaptation of the book `The Dark Tower`.

The actor is likely to essay Eddie Dean, who is the lead figure in the Stephen King book series of the same name.

"I`ve had a ton of meetings on that. I just had a general sit down with Ron Howard, who is a huge fan of the show (`Breaking Bad`), which is such a crazy thing to even think that Ron Howard even knows who I am," Bang Showbiz quoted Paul as saying.

The actor also said that the film will have three parts and a "television element" will also be added to it.

"They`re definitely planning on making it. I`m excited. Their goal is to do three films, but also have a television element to it, which will be very interesting. From what I hear, Eddie Dean is a pretty epic, iconic character," he added.

The actor has also been seen in `Wreckage`, `Say Goodnight` and `Daydreamer`.
