Tom Taylor, who will be tackling the role of Jake in the upcoming feature film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, shared a new promo image from the film via Twitter, today. Check it out for yourself after the jump!
Nikolaj Arcel (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo 2009) is at the helm of the upcoming adaptation. He also cowrote the script with Anders Thomas Jensen, Akiva Goldsman, and Jeff Pinkner. Taylor stars alongside Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey, Fran Kranz, Jackie Earle Haley, and Abbey Lee.
The Dark Tower is currently in production. It has been a long and arduous process but Stephen King, himself, recently revealed, via Twitter, that cameras have begun rolling on the project. The picture is lensing in South Africa, and Sony is targeting a February 17, 2017 release date.
Past reports have alluded to a film series based on the property that would also include a TV mini series that would run in between feature film installments. So, if this film does well, there will be a lot more Dark Tower to come. Stay tuned for more on this as it is announced!
