Posted Thursday January 23, 2014 4:25 PM GMT

Ready to put his "Breaking Bad" days behind him, Aaron Paul revealed he may be involved in the production of "The Dark Tower" movie/TV adaption during this year's Sundance Film Festival.

Not only did Paul confirm that the Ron Howard-directed project is in the works, Aaron also stated that he has "a ton" of meetings about staring as the main character, Eddie Dean.

"I just had a general sit down with Ron Howard, who is a huge fan of the show [Breaking Bad]," Aaron stated to Ain't it Cool News. "Which is such a crazy thing to even think that Ron Howard even knows who I am. They're definitely planning on making it."

He continued, "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 an pretty epic, iconic character."

The TV or movie adaptation is based on horror author Stephen King's eight book series that "incorporates themes from multiple genres including fantasy, science fantasy, horror and western."
