Last week we posted pictures of Matthew McConaughey as Randall Flagg, filming in Manhattan on The Dark Tower movie.
Well, you can’t have Flagg without his nemesis, the Last Gunslinger, Roland of Gilead, played by Idris Elba looking especially awesome in these new images from The Daily Mail.
We speculated in the last article that McConaughey is probably filming the scene where SPOILERS his character pushes young Jake Chambers under the wheels of a car on a busy New York street where he dies and wakes up in Mid-World, where he first meets Roland Deschain SPOILERS END.
Given the presence of Roland in New York we have to reckon that this could be the section of the second Dark Tower book, The Drawing of the Three, where Roland meets The Pusher… but we don’t want to go into this too much for those who don’t know the story…. if you do know the story then you’ll know when I’m talking about.
Given that we’re hearing the movie will focus on the fourth book The Wolves of the Calla, we have to assume that the story is anything but linear in this version… does that worry us? Yes. Are we still excited? Damn straight, we are…
