The long-anticipated adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower is finally underway, and now pictures from the South Africa set have leaked, giving us our first look at The Gunslinger, played by Idris Elba.
The images come from Twitter, and show off Elba looking pretty impressive in the costume:
It tells of the story of Roland Deschain (Elba), the Mid-World's last gunslinger, who travels across the post-apocalyptic landscape in search of the magical edifice known as the Dark Tower, the nexus point of the space-time continuum.
The film, which has been in some stage of development for the better part of a decade, will be directed by Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair), with Matthew McConaughey co-starring as the Man in Black.
The film is scheduled for release on January 13, 2017.
