“Traveller, beyond lies Mid-World.” If you’re already familiar with Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower,” there’s a good chance these words will have you even more excited for next year’s film adaptation of the endlessly prolific author’s eight-book series than you already are. Tom Taylor, the young actor who plays Jake, tweeted out a new image from the film accompanied by that line.
The equivalent line from the book — “Go, then. There are other worlds than these” — is invoked via superimposed text. This most recent still follows a series of other brief looks at “The Dark Tower” released in recent months; the first full trailer for director Nikolaj Arcel’s silver-screen adaptation is expected in October.
Arcel’s best-known film to date is “A Royal Affair,” though he also co-wrote the screenplay for the original “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey, Abbey Lee, Jackie Earle Haley and Katheryn Winnick round out the ensemble cast of his Hollywood debut, which Columbia Pictures will release on February 17, 2017.
