Jerome Flynn, who plays the ever-so charming Bronn in HBO's "Game of Thrones," has just scored a role in Amazon's small screen adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower, Mirror reports.
"’Game of Thrones’ has opened doors to some great stuff,” Flynn told the site. "I’m getting offered stuff I never would have."
Flynn will play a cowboy in the upcoming dramatization of Stephen King’s seven-book "Dark Tower: series.
He adds, "I’ve always said I’d like to play a cowboy – and now one has come along. I’m excited for that."
Back in 2017, Idris Elba brought gunslinger Roland Deschain to big screens around the world in The Dark Tower, and Leatherface star Sam Strike has been cast as the character for Amazon's adaptation, Jasper Pääkkönen (BlacKkKlansman) will co-star as the Man in Black.
Deadline recently explained, “The Dark Tower TV series is independent from the film and is meant to be a more faithful retelling of the book than the movie was. I hear it will take place many years before the events depicted in the film, and will focus on Roland Deschain’s (Strike) origin story– how he first became a gunslinger and got his guns, his first conflict with the man in black, his first love and his first mission as a gunslinger.”
Glen Mazzara (“The Walking Dead”) is showrunner and executive producer.
