Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey are joined in The Dark Tower by Abbey Lee as the film’s female lead, Tirana, and Fran Kranz as Pimli, the right hand man of Flagg. The film also features Jackie Earle Haley, Katheryn Winnick and Claudia Kiim.
The Dark Tower series tells the story of Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, who is traveling southeast across Mid-World’s post-apocalyptic landscape, searching for the powerful but elusive magical edifice known as The Dark Tower. Located in the fey region of End-World, amid a sea of singing red roses, the Dark Tower is the nexus point of the time-space continuum. It is the heart of all worlds, but it is also under threat. Someone, or something, is using the evil technology of the Great Old Ones to destroy it.
Series creator and author Stephen King previously seemed to imply that the forthcoming film wasn’t a direct adaptation of The Dark Tower book series but actually a continuation, focusing on Roland’s final cycle in his pursuit of the titular location.
The Dark Tower scheduled for release on February 17, 2017.
