The Dark Tower TV Series Details Finally Revealed!

The Dark Tower TV Series

Executive producer and co-screenwriter, Akiva Goldsman, spoke with EW about the Dark Tower series and revealed that it’s still in the cards. MRC is planning for a 10 to 13-episode first season for the series.

The show will adapt the fourth book in the series, Wizard and Glass, which was primarily a prequel novel about the origins of Roland and will feature the return of Idris Elba as Roland Deschain, aka The Gunslinger, along with Tom Taylor as Jake Chambers.

Story tells the origin of Roland, a younger actor will be cast in the role with Elba and Taylor serving as the framing device for the series. It’s possible that Matthew McConaughey could appear as The Man in Black in the series, as the character did appear in the story, though it’s possible he’ll be wearing a different face.

“In the movie, Roland is suffering tremendous loss. The most concrete, personal, existential heartbreak a character can have,” Goldsman tells the outlet. “If the movie chronicles his final reach toward hope again, the TV show is the loss of that hope.”

Dark Tower is scheduled for release on February 17, 2017.
