The Wheel of Ka Turns Yet Again For ‘The Dark Tower’

It seems us Dark Tower fans will have to wait a little bit longer for the film’s premiere, reports Entertainment Weekly. Originally scheduled for February 2017, the movie has now been pushed back into the summer. No specific details have been given. Principal photography was completed in July, so perhaps the delay is due to the extensive post-production needed to finish the fantasy film. A television series, reportedly based on the fourth book in the series Wizard and Glass,  is also expected to help finish the story after the movie’s release.  The film has had a long history of starts and stops, with many attempts at production by  J.J. Abrams and Ron Howard. 

The Dark Tower, based on a series of novels by Stephen King, details the heroic quest of Roland Deschain, the last Gunslinger of his land, who along with a young boy from our Earth named Jake, attempts to stop the evil Man In Black from destroying the Dark Tower and eradicating all reality with it.

The film stars Idris Elba as Roland, Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black, and Tom Taylor as Jake Chamber .  The cast also includes Jackie Earle Haley, Franz Kranz, Abby Lee Kershaw, Claudia Kim, Michael Barberi, Jose Zuniga, Alex McGregor, De-Wet Nagel, and Nicholas Hamilton. It is directed by Nikolaj Arcel and produced by Sony Pictures Entertainment and Media Rights Capital.
