(Los Angeles) - Warner Bros. have reportedly found their new director for the much-anticipated 'Dark Tower' adaptation based on the prolific book series by Stephen King after negotiations with Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer fell through earlier this week. Deadline reported the deal that was secured late Friday and Warner Bros. confirmed it not long after. Christopher Nolan will direct and produce the trilogy with his wife Emma Thomas under their Syncopy Films banner. It will consist of three films that will span seven novels and a mini-series to cover 'The Wind Through the Keyhole' that will be executive produced by both Nolan and his brother Jonathan (creator of TV's 'Person of Interest') that will premiere on NBC in early 2014.

Javier Bardem is still in negotiations to star as the main protagonist Roland Deschain. No other cast members have been announced but you can expect names to roll out over the next few weeks. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was quoted in an interview with A.V. Club that was released Thursday as saying, "...but yeah, it was great to work with Nolan. He has this work ethic unlike anyone. He's there for every shot, even the second unit stuff. We're actually talking about something big right now that I can't exactly speculate on, but needless to say, I'm VERY excited. I'd sign any dotted line he put in front of me." Many fans have speculated that he may play Eddie Dean, a 21-year old heroin addict from Brooklyn who becomes an ally to Roland.

Wow. Holy fuck... I am speechless.

Oh yeah, April Fools! !!!!

Hahaha, I was purposely not reading the spoiler because I thought it was an actual spoiler, and that the reason everyone was getting so mad was because it wasn't blacked out before. Then I realized what day it was.

Brutal as fuck, dickface.

I had my dad's number dialed to call and tell him, I was so excited.

EDIT: I was starting to think it didn't make much sense when it mentioned 7 novels would make 3 movies and the shortest book (WTTKH) would have its own mini series.
