The film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower stars Idris Elba as Roland Deschain (The Gunslinger), Matthew McConaughey as Randall Flagg (The Man in Black), Abbey Lee as Tirana, Tom Taylor as young Jake Chambers,  Fran Kranz as Pimli, and Katheryn Winnick.

The first image of Idris Elba on set as Roland is here and you can see it below.

It is a huge series – eight novels, assorted comic books and short stories – so it is going to be a tough one to adapt. However, King and director Nikolaj Arcel, recently spoke about the adaptation. King says the movie will open with the first line from the first book. “It should start that way,” he says. “I’ve been pretty insistent about that.” However, the first film will not adapt the plot of the first book, The Gunslinger, published in 1982.

King talks more about that here.

The Dark Tower arrives in cinemas on 17th February 2017.
