As has been rumored, Idris Elba has now officially been cast as Roland in Stephen King’s The Dark Tower (and a fascinating choice, he is). Elba will be joining Matthew McConaughey, who will be playing the Man in Black, in the film adaptation we’ve been waiting at least five years to see come to fruition. After lots of stops and starts, it’s finally coming together with Nikolaj Arcel in the director’s chair.

Idris and McConaughey are basically the best movie pairing since Ledger and Bale. Let us just hope the gentle chiding on Twitter continues throughout production.

It’s all happening, folks.
