Idris Elba is reportedly in talks to star in the film adaptation of The Dark Tower.

According to Deadline, Elba is the frontrunner to play Roland Deschain, who would likely square off against Matthew McConaughey as the villainous Man In Black.

The first instalment of The Dark Tower will focus on the first book in the series, The Gunslinger, establishing the relationship between Roland and young protege Jake Chambers.

Numerous attempts have been made to take the book onto the big screen but it looks to be finally happening with Idris and McConaughey potentially onboard, Nikolaj Arcel to helm and a release date scheduled for January 27, 2017.
