THE DARK TOWER is easily one of the most talked-about films of the upcoming year, so every little drip of material we see from it is to be treasured. The new image that has been released from the film is especially cool because it unites Idris Elba's Roland Deschain with Matthew McConaughey's villainous man in black in what looks like it'll be an epic face-off. Check it out below!
Directed by Nikolaj Arcel from a screenplay he wrote with Anders Thomas Jensen, Akiva Goldsman, and Jeff Pinkner, THE DARK TOWER is actually said to function as a sequel of sorts to the book series:
THE DARK TOWER will follow a wandering knight who is the last hope of the fallen land of Mid-World. He is charged with finding the Dark Tower while battling his nemesis the Man in Black.
Elba and McConaughey are joined in the cast by Tom Taylor as Jake Chambers, a young boy who has "The Shine"; Fran Kranz as the Man in Black's right hand man Pimli; Jackie Earle Haley as vampire leader Sayre; Katheryn Winnick in a mystery role; and Abbey Lee as Tirana, who was a minor villain in the final book.
THE DARK TOWER will rise into theaters on July 28, 2017.
