Filming has been taking place in Cape Town on the Nikolaj Arcel-directed adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” eight-book fantasy saga for a little while now, but today the first photos have arrived of the film’s main star Idris Elba in costume shooting scenes for the movie.
The Daily Mail posted the shots of the 43-year-old British actor as gunslinger Roland Deschain, frontiersman knight who goes head-to-head with the villainous Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey).
You’re welcome, everyone. (Idris Elba on the set of the Dark Tower) pic.twitter.com/BRBKdsNSCA
