‘Dark Tower’ Taps Newcomer Tom Taylor for Jake Chambers Role (EXCLUSIVE)

I  forget about this blog a lot but quick round up:

  • https://www.facebook.com/bettymaecasting/photos/a.859433057428659.1073741828.859394207432544/999690443402919/?type=3&theaterFrom here: 
  • “I think that it’s more likely than not that Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey will be in it,” King says. “But I can’t say with any certainty. I know that they’re trying to make deals with these actors [and] with Sony, and that’s the extent of my knowledge.”
  • Abbey Lee has been cast as a minor character from book seven. A lot of people on my dash are outraged by this but I’m wondering if they’re using the name for the demon at the altar and maybe turning them into a character. I’m hoping that. Especially as the description I’m seeing everywhere is  “sexy and dangerous,” with “fake human skin and cold snake-like eyes.”
  • Also according to this quite frankly shifty looking casting agency they’re doing an open casting for “Jack”, but as (last I heard) The Talisman had been optioned that might be something to do with that. And even if it is for The Dark Tower, it wouldn’t be the first time a false name was used on the casting announcement. (People seem to be getting really hung up on that for some reason.)
  • And someone on Reddit claims to have read a draft of the script, according to them it the movie is a mash up of all the stories and Jake is the main character. I’m not inclined to believe them without seeing some sort of physical proof but… I wouldn’t be surprised if this was true at all.
