It seems that there’s just no winning for the feature-length adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, which has already shifted release dates twice (once from January 13th to February 17th and then from that date to July 28th). Now the film has been shifted yet again, only this time it’s not that bad of a shift. Moving back one week, The Dark Tower will now be coming out on August 4th.
Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey, Fran Kranz, Abbey Lee, Tom Taylor, and Katheryn Winnick co-star.
Based on the King-penned fantasy series, the film follows a wandering knight who is the last hope of the fallen land of Mid-World. He is charged with finding the Dark Tower while battling his nemesis, the Man in Black.
Nikolaj Arcel directs with Ron Howard and Brian Grazer producing under their Imagine Entertainment banner along with Stephen King and Erica Huggins.
