Idris Elba: Actor In Talks To Star In ‘The Dark Tower’ Movie

Idris Elba is in early talks to play gunslinger Roland Deschain, with Matthew McConaughey in negotiations to play the villainous Man in Black in a feature film adaptation of Stephen King‘s “The Dark Tower”.

A fan-favorite due to roles such as BBC crime drama “Luther,” there has long been support for Elba as a potential candidate to take over from Daniel Craig as James Bond. The role of Roland Deschain could place him at the head of a different franchise, as Sony Pictures and Media Rights Capital hope for “The Dark Tower,” based on a series of eight western-fantasy novels, to be the first of multiple films.

Matthew McConaughey is currently in talks to play The Man In Black, one of the series’ villains. Directed by Nikolaj Arcel (“A Royal Affair”), “The Dark Tower” has a release date of Jan. 13, 2017.
