Stephen King's THE DARK TOWER Has Started Shooting!
After all these years of impatiently waiting, Stephen King's The Dark Tower series is finally going into production! Sony Pictures announced at CinemaCon that the first film has already started principal photography with director Nikolaj Arcel (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo).
Idris Elba is set to play Roland, the Gunslinger, Matthew McConaughey will play the villain Flagg a.k.a. The Man in Black, and Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul is said to be taking on the role of Eddie Dean.
This is such a gritty, dark fantasy world that has only lived in my imagination from reading the book. I can't wait to start seeing images and video footage from this film. I'm so excited to see how this story is going to be brought to life. This franchise has the potential to be huge! If the studios and filmmakers do it right it will be.
The film will be released in January of 2017.
