Photos: McConaughey Shoots “Dark Tower”

Filming is still continuing on the much-anticipated film adaptation of Stephen King’s ” The Dark Tower” with shooting primarily taking place in South Africa under the helm of Nikolaj Arcel. However, a bit of filming has also recently been taking place in New York City with a sequence being shot that boasts our first look at Matthew McConaughey in costume as the chief villain Randall Flagg.

It’s rumored the scene will depict the events in the book series that lead to Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor) joining Roland in Mid-World after being removed from our own reality. Idris Elba, Abby Lee, Fran Kranz, Jackie Earle Haley, Katheryn Winnick and Claudia Kiim also star in the feature which is scheduled for release on February 17th 2017.
