Stephen King’s Gunslinger comes to life.
Roland is one moody Gunslinger. Ok, he’s the last Gunslinger. The live action telling of Stephen King’s Dark Tower story begins now. Based on a series of books focused upon the character Roland Deschain in his battle to stop the Man in Black from bringing down the Dark Tower. Here’s a hint, that Dark Tower is very important.
The official synopsis follows;
“There are other worlds than these. Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, the ambitious and expansive story from one of the world’s most celebrated authors, makes its launch to the big screen. The last Gunslinger, Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O’Dim, also known as the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey), determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower, which holds the universe together. With the fate of the worlds at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man in Black.”
Idris Elba stars as Roland, while Matthew McConaughey seems a bit miscast as the Man in Black. The movie will be released August 4th, so we have plenty of time to see a few more trailers after this.
