Recent reports from Deadline.com stated that Abbey Lee will be the female main character “Tirana“ in the upcoming Dark Tower Movie. Eric Vespe („Quint“) now reported on aintitcool.com that her role in the movie will just be minor. Mentioning “Tirana“ to be a lead character in the first Dark Tower Movie has led to some confusion before: The character is  a servant of the Crimson King and only appears shortly in the seventh Dark Tower book. Now, Abbey Lee apparently will have a cameo in the Dark Tower Movie as “Tirana”. Not a female lead at all, but it still remains unclear why this character appears in the first movie that early in the story.

At the begin of March 2016 it was reported that the Dark Tower Movie will be realized with Idris Elba as Roland Deschain, Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black and Tom Taylor as Jake Chambers. Sony announced that the Movie will head to theaters in February 2017, and filming should begin in 7 weeks from then. This would be already in around 2 weeks! But still, we don’t know much more details about the movie yet. However, recent statements from Eric Vespe on ainitcool.com are in line with some of the confusion seeded by casting characters like Tirana from the seventh book of the saga for the first movie. He reported that the movie will focus mainly on the relationship between Roland and Jake and contain parts from at least book three and book one. This means the chronology of the story we know from the books will be changed massively for the movie adaptation. Continue reading Abbey Lee is not the Femal Lead in the Dark Tower Movie

“It is a story of the end of the world, and it is not over yet. Roland Deschain is now a man – a man with only one goal in life: to pursue the Man in Black to the end of Mid-World and make him pay for destroying everything dear to him. But is this really a pursuit? Or is the Man in Black luring him into a maze of dead ends and false horizons? Is the collapse of Mid-World already a forgone conclusion? The answer – as always – lies frustratingly at the world’s end. And with what John Farson has planned for him, Roland might not make it that far.”
