Bardem in TV adaptations

New York: Oscar-winning actor Javier Bardem has been signed to star in the movie and TV adaptations of Stephen King`s `Dark Tower` book series.

Bardem will play Roland Deschain in the eagerly awaited Ron Howard and Brian Grazer adaptation of King`s beloved seven-novel saga.

It`s a momentous deal because each of the three movies in the series is to be followed by a TV miniseries.

"Bardem has signed on to the first movie and the miniseries, but the intention is that he will star in all three movies and each of the TV series. It``s an enormous deal for any actor, but Bardem was always the first choice," the New York Post quoted a well-placed source as saying.

The first movie is due for production in September with Howard directing.
