First Look At Idris Elba As The Gunslinger On The Set Of THE DARK TOWER

First Look At Idris Elba As The Gunslinger On The Set Of THE DARK TOWER

The long overdue big screen adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower series is finally shooting, and the first photos of Idris Elba (Thor) suited up as Roland Deschain have found their way online...

There's been talk of adapting Stephen King's 3000+ page epic The Dark Tower for years now, but it's finally happening with Nikolaj Arcel at the helm and Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey set to star. How exactly it will go about adapting the series remains to be seen, and it's currently thought that it will borrow elements not just from The Gunslinger (the first novel), but later instalments as well. 

Now, thanks to Mail Online, we have the first set photos from this highly anticipated 2017 release featuring the Thor and Luther star fully suited up and ready for action as Roland Deschain. 

Despite the fact that the character was white in the books (something which actually plays a fairly significant role in the second novel when we meet Detta Walker), there's been relatively little backlash to Elba's casting, a testament to what an incredible talent the British actor is. Needless to say, he looks every bit the part, and it now hopefully won't be long until we see the first official images.

Unfortunately, the photos are copyrighted, so CLICK HERE to check them out at Mail Online.
