“Guardians of the Galaxy” star Michael Rooker has joined the TV series adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” fantasy series for Amazon. Glen Mazzara will serve as showrunner and executive producer.
Rooker announced his involvement on his official site, but there’s no details about what role Rooker will play in the series which will have a thirteen episode first season.
Rooker will join Jerome Flynn (“Game of Thrones”) as a cowboy, Jasper Paakkonen (“Vikings”) as The Man in Black and Sam Strike (“Nightflyers”) as the gunslinger Roland Deschain in the series.
Originally planned as a tie-in to the 2017 film starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, Amazon is now rebooting the franchise with the series to be a more faithful adaptation of the books.
