For many, many years, people have been teasing a movie adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower, a series of westerns with dark fantasy and horror themes. Year after year, we don't seem to get any closer to that wish. Yesterday, however, Stephen King spoke on the matter himself, saying:
"It looks to me like it's more likely than not it'll happen at this point. Let's put it that way. I think that it's more likely than not that Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey will be in it. But I can't say with any certainty. I know that they're trying to make deals with these actors [and] with Sony, and that's the extent of my knowledge"
This is HUGE news! Matthew McConaughey would be great as Roland, the main protagonist.
