Matthew McConaughey & Idris Elba to Star in Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower'

Stephen King just confirmed that Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey will star in The Dark Tower movie!

“The thing is, it’s been a looong trip from the books to the film,” Stephen told EW. “When you think about it, I started these stories as a senior in college, sitting in a little sh-tty cabin beside the river in Maine, and finally this thing is actually in pre-production now. I’m delighted, and I’m a little bit surprised.”

Idris will play the gunslinger, while Matthew will take on the role of the mystical Man in Black. After the news was announced, the actors went back and forth on Twitter.

    So I guess we’re going to see all those people who just hate when a different race is cast to play a known character.

    Just so lame how they announce it as just two new casting news.

    Instead of as a big deal Idris was cast as. “Roland Dechain” the main white character of a series of books from by Steven King the began in 80′s till today.
