After years and years of being in and out of production, The Dark Tower creator himself, Stephen King, officially confirms the film is in pre-production. After being rumored, it looks like we’ll be seeing Idris Elba in the role of The Gunslinger and Matthew McConaughey as The Man in Black. I have never read the book series myself, but I am a fan of King and his work and I can’t wait to see what happens next. Maybe by the time the film actually comes out, I can read the books

No word on when filming starts or when the movie will debut, but be sure to check back here at DFAT for all of the latest news.
