Some days ago, Deadline.com reported that actor Idris Elba currently is strongly considered to play Roland Deschain in the upcoming Dark Tower movie adaptation by Sony/MRC. Just some days before, some other rumors spread about Matthew McConaughey to play Roland (or maybe the Man in Black). After all, considering all the previous discussion about who will finally play the Dark Tower Movie lead role, it remains absolutely unclear who will be the final “Roland Deschain”. We still can only discuss, speculate and wait for the final word.
In addition, recent reports make clear that if and when a Dark Tower Movie Adaptation will be produced by the current team (Sony, Media Rights Capital, Ron Howard, Akiva Goldsman, Brian Grazer), also is not set in stone. Despite Sony already having announced an official start date (January 2017) for the first motion picture, Ron Howard in a recent interview said that the final decision about the project has not been made yet.
Taken together: Nothing clear yet, we can stay excited if we ever will see Dark Tower movies on the big screen.
