We’ve all been dying to see more of how the adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘The Dark Tower‘ is going to look and new set photos have surfaced showing off Matthew McConaughey as The Man in Black. That’s right folks, Randall Flagg is coming and I can’t stress how spot on it looks that McConaughey is in the role. If I have to complain it will be that the studio didn’t option the rights to all of King’s films related to the book so that we won’t be seeing him take on The Walkin’ Dude in ‘The Stand’, ‘The Eyes of the Dragon’, or ‘Hearts in Atlantis’. With all of the Cinematic Universes that are currently being built this would have made much more sense than even Universal’s Classic Monster Movies.
Due to the uncertain legality of these photos, I can’t share them directly here but if you click through to Just Jared you can check them out in all of their glory!
At least until they get a takedown notice.
The look itself is spot on: from the hair to the outfit to the long nails. McConaughey just oozes a bit of sociopath in his look which is just right for the character.
These scenes clearly don’t show The Man in Black being chased across the desert and have him in a major city. If this is early enough in the story it could be related to when Tom Taylor as Jake Chambers ends up getting dragged into joining Roland in this story. Sadly, we’ll have to wait until February to really find out.
