Now that it's actually filming in South Africa, THE DARK TOWER can't be snatched back into Production Hell, right? Well, I'll only believe it when I see it, but here's the next best thing: The Daily Mail snagged a glimpse at Idris Elba on set, in costume as his character Roland Deschain the Gunslinger. Check out the pictures below!
