Idris looks pretty badass just about any time of the day, but photos of the British actor on the set of The Dark Tower emerged and we’re so ready to see him flex his Wild Wild West gunslinging skills.
Based on the fictional series by Stephen King, here’s the official synopsis of The Dark Tower:
The Dark Tower series tells the story of Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, who is traveling southeast across Mid-World’s post-apocalyptic landscape, searching for the powerful but elusive magical edifice known as The Dark Tower. Located in the fey region of End-World, amid a sea of singing red roses, the Dark Tower is the nexus point of the time-space continuum. It is the heart of all worlds, but it is also under threat. Someone, or something, is using the evil technology of the Great Old Ones to destroy it.
Elba plays The Gunslinger in the film adaption of The Dark Tower, and from the looks of things he’s going to kill it–literally.
The film, which is due out sometime in 2017, also stars Matthew McConaughey.
We cannot wait.
