Here's Your First Look at Idris Elba in 'The Dark Tower'
After numerous starts and stops over the years, Stephen King's epic Dark Tower series is finally getting the big screen treatment. Not only that, but the film is going to star Idris Elba as the Gunslinger and Matthew McConaughey as his mortal enemy, the Man in Black. The film isn't due out until next year, but some leaked set photos are giving us our first look at Elba in the role. Behold:



As you can see, Elba will be sporting a pretty typical Western motif, complete with his trademark dual revolvers, but keep in mind this film isn't an ordinary Western. It's a dimension-hopping, sci-fi/fantasy/horror epic that pits good against evil in a race to the Dark Tower - the nexus of all space and time. The movie was in development hell for years, so it's pretty surreal to actually see photos from the set, confirming that this film really is being made. We'll have to keep our eyes peeled for McConaughey in the weeks to come, but so far we like what we're seeing.
