Idris Elba ,McConaughey Attend Premiere Of 'The Dark Tower'

Idris Elba ,McConaughey Attend Premiere Of 'The Dark Tower'”

After a long road to the big screen, The Dark Tower finally opens in theaters this Friday.

The first to option King's series of eight novels was J.J. Abrams, but he eventually left the project. "They don't pander. They're not trying to make friends".

There have been a lot of questions about The Dark Tower, including why the running time is so short and why we haven't seen more promotion of it. According to the report, the execs were so displeased with Arcel's cut that they considered removing him from the film and bringing in another director to recut his footage.

During a recent interview with IndieWire, director Nikolaj Arcel (who's also helping with the series) revealed that the TV series will adhere closely to King's novels. Their unhappiness was further enforced by three blind screenings in October, in which audiences had a negative reaction to the film and were confused by its mythology. Citing the old "too many cooks" adage, the outlet claims that while The Dark Tower has all the trappings of a blockbuster movie franchise - two bankable leads in Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba; cutting-edge visual effects; and a rich universe to explore - the fact that both MRC and author King held veto power over select story elements means that Sony's adaptation is more streamlined than the marketing material would have you believe.

Still, though, there were reportedly issues stemming from disagreements between MRC and Sony. One insider described the project as having "too many cooks in the kitchen", with the two companies finding difficulty agreeing.

Well, this might be the answer we've been looking for. "If someone had jumped into my editing room and taken over- I would have left instantly". One of the worlds it balances is present-day Earth, which is where Roland travels to for much of the movie, along with Jake Chambers, a young New Yorker who has dark, distressing visions of the world containing the Dark Tower. The release, initially set for February, was previously pushed back to July before being moved another week to August.
