The 34-year-old Breaking bad star would play Eddie Dean, the lead character in the book series.
''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," Paul is quoted as saying.
''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.''
The Dark Tower, a story told in a series of books that incorporates fantasy, science fantasy and horror, was stalled in pre-production when Universal Studios dropped the project. The film was later picked up by Warner Bros. in August 2012, but dropped again a few weeks later.
Howard has confirmed that the film is a work in progress and that they're still looking into making it.
