Now that Stephen King’s The Dark Tower is officially in production with Idris Elba (Prometheus, “Luther”) and Matthew McConaughey (Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, “True Detective”), Columbia Pictures has set the adaptation for release on February 17th, 2017.
The Dark Tower has long attempted to receive a film adaptation, often times languishing in development hell and being passed from writer to writer, director to director. But now the movie is in full swing with Elba slated to play gunslinger “Roland Deschain” and McConaughey taking on the role of the villainous “Man in Black”. Additionally, the role of Tirana was offered to Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road).
Nikolaj Arcel is directing The Dark Tower.
