Los Angeles: Two of Hollywood`s hottest hunks, Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman, may come together in a movie adaptation of Stephen King`s fantasy horror `The Dark Tower`.

The film will be directed by Ron Howard and he has confirmed that he is in talks with the actors for the parts in the adaptation, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The project, however, is yet to get a go ahead by a studio.

"We`ve been meeting and talking and I`ve been researching and just kind of living with it. I really can`t stop thinking about it.

"I`ve been constantly going through stuff and I`ve just been re-listening to it on audio books on my iPod and we`ve been sending e-mails back and forth, `What about this approach? What do you think of this idea?` We`re finding the shape of it. We`re moving quickly now, as quickly as we can, and I feel challenged in the most exciting ways," Howard said.

A series of `The Dark Tower` projects are currently in the making, the first film is expected in 2013, followed by a television series, a second movie, more TV and then a final film.
