The Dark Tower Nikolaj Arcel Michael Barbieri Idris Elba Matthew McConaughey Banner

Deadline is reporting that fourteen-year-old actor Michael Barbieri (LITTLE MEN) is in talks to join Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey and Tom Taylor in Nikolaj Arcel's THE DARK TOWER. If Barbieri does officially sign on (and it looks like he will), he'll be playing Timmy, the best friend of Taylor's Jake Chambers. The fim will also feature the talents of Katheryn Winnick (in a currently undisclosed role), Jackie Earle Haley as Sayre, and Fran Kranz as Pimli.

Filming is underway for the adaptation of Stephen King's fantasy novel series, and several photos from the production have landed online, including a first look at the movie's logo and a prosthetic of a demonic nun. What are you thoughts on these first THE DARK TOWER set images?

THE DARK TOWER is slated to open on February 17, 2017.

I can still remember starting to read my first book in the series, just over 18 years ago, The Drawing of the Three. My first thought was "what a stupid title". I was hooked immediately! Went back and read the first one, then picked up my favorite of the series, Wizards and Glass, which I must've read over a dozen times. I loved the throwback story of a young Roland, how he fell in love, how they acted as gunslingers in training etc. King can write his ass off, and he really knows how to keep
I can still remember starting to read my first book in the series, just over 18 years ago, The Drawing of the Three. My first thought was "what a stupid title". I was hooked immediately! Went back and read the first one, then picked up my favorite of the series, Wizards and Glass, which I must've read over a dozen times. I loved the throwback story of a young Roland, how he fell in love, how they acted as gunslingers in training etc. King can write his ass off, and he really knows how to keep you wanting more! So while I'm obviously a big fan of his work period, I have almost all his books, Dark Tower series is my favorite right next to Salems Lot. The latter is the first book I ever read that legitimately scared the shit out of me! Which impressed me to no end!

So while I remain ever hopeful, and of course I'm gonna see this in the theater, I can't picture Idris Elba as Roland Deschain. I love him as an actor, he crushed it in the Wire, Luthor, etc. but he isn't Roland in anyway whatsoever.

Glad to see they're using prosthetics for the creatures. But Sony is probably not going to be happy that this artist posts his work on Instagram during this stage.
