The Dark Tower Has Started Filming

The long in-development feature film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower has begun principal photography.

“The thing is, it’s been a long trip from the books to the film,” King said about The Dark Tower when it entered production. “I’m delighted, and I’m a little bit surprised.”

King has described The Dark Tower as his magnum opus, wherein he created a world that ties together many of his novels. The Dark Tower is said to take place during the events of just the first book in the series.

The Dark Tower, starring Idris Elba as Roland, the last Gunslinger, Matthew McConaughey as The Man in Black, Abbey Lee as Tirana, Aaron Paul is rumored to be on board as Eddie Dean, and Jackie Earle Haley as Richard Sayre, will be directed by Nikolaj Arcel and is eyeing a February 17, 2017 release date.

I’m a fun loving geek from New York who loves all things nerdy including games, film, books, and comics. I’ve been writing since I was in high school and plan on doing so for as long as I can. I’ve also written a few comics of my own and hope to work on my own book or comic series one day. I am also a co-host on the Grindhouse Radio where host a segment called Kevin’s Corner where I talk about movies and comics. You can read more of my work over at my own blog, Kev's Corner.
