Update on Dark Tower Movie Cast and Plot

dark tower arts_gunslinger1It has been a long way, but meanwhile it is clear that the Dark Tower Movie will finally become real. Here’s an update on the few latest facts and rumors:

The movie title will be “The Dark Tower – The Gunslinger”, directed by Nikolaj Arcel. The book is written by Akiva Goldsman and Anders Thomas Jensen. Producers comprise Akiva Goldsman, Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Erica Huggins, Stephen King and Jeff Pinkner. Besides Sony Pictures Entertainment and Media Rights Capital, Imagine Entertainment and Weed Road Pictures joined the circle of production companies.

The release date is planned for 17 February 2017. In few weeks, filming will start in South Africa. However, only few cast members are officially assigned, still unclear how will play Susannah and Eddie, if they are in the first movie anyway:

Idris Elba … The Gunslinger/Roland Deschain
Matthew McConaughey … The Man in Black
Abbey Lee … Tirana
Tom Taylor … Jake Chambers

Some speculations indicate that the chronology of the first Dark Tower movie will be different to that from the books and the plot will focus on the relationship between Jake and Roland, suggesting that Eddie and Susannah maybe will not be casted until the second movie is set up.

Since there is not much time left, we probably will have exciting news to come soon! We will keep you updated.

Until then: Long Days and Pleasant Nights!
