The Dark Tower is one of the longest-developing Stephen California king adaptations — Ron Howard seemed to be on board to strong at one point, but is now simply making the film, that will be directed by A Regal Affair helmer Nikolaj Arcel. Given how long and seemingly torturous the development on this project has been, it’utes a bit surprising that will Sony has ultimately set a discharge date for The Darkish Tower.
Per Variety, Sony has announced a lot of new release appointments — in addition to the Bad Boys sequels (plural!) we reported earlier currently, the studio has set a The month of january 13, 2017 release night out for the first sequel in The Dark Tower business.
Based on the series of Stephen Full novels (there are 6 total), The Dark Tower concentrates on Roland Deschain, the last of the Gunslingers in the world that has “progressed.” Roland follows a dark man across the desert in a place often known as Mid-World and rescues a boy named John, who joins him on his trip to the mysterious Black Tower. Roland picks up different companions in pursuing novels and the narrative becomes increasingly exceptional, blending elements of westerns in addition to fantasy.
The first Dark Tower e-book is the easiest to evolve, though it’s peculiar that it’s consumed Sony this extended to figure it out. Arcel is a good director, known for the actual stunning period dilemma A Royal Affair (which is far from your average interval drama), starring Mads Mikkelsen and also Alicia Vikander. Arcel also wrote this screenplays for the first Swedish version of The Young lady With the Dragon Tattoo, as well as its follow-up miniseries.
Now that Sony provides revealed an official relieve date, feel free to start off speculating about that might play Roland — our pick is Erina Fassbender, for the record.
