The Dark Tower: Elba and McConaughey confirmed

Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey both sign up for the film take on Stephen King’s The Dark Tower…

It’s finally happening. The battle to bring Stephen King’s The Dark Tower to the big screen has been a lengthy one, but the movie now has its director, and its two lead stars.

For some time now, Nikolaj Arcel has been in the director’s chair, sitting where Ron Howard was once set to be. Howard was involved for many years, back when the project was with Universal. Universal pulled out, concerned at the cost, and the plan for a film and TV series. Sony took the project on last April though, and looks to have got things together.

Now we have the confirmation that The Dark Tower is to be led by Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey. What’s more, production is set to begin in just under two months, with an outside possibility that The Dark Tower will make it to our screens before the end of 2017.
