After years of trying to get an adaptation of Stephen King's prolific Dark Tower series made, the franchise is finally moving forward with Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey confirmed to star.
The author tweeted out the details this morning, and Entertainment Weekly confirmed that Elba would be playing the gunslinger, while McConaughey would portray the infamous man in black.
Director Nikolaj Arcel — best known for his script work on the Swedish thriller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo — told the magazine he has plans to start shooting in seven weeks.
The Dark Tower has been tentatively set to be released Jan. 13, 2017.
