Cape Town – In seven weeks Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba will begin filming their new movie in South Africa, reports Entertainment Weekly.
The pair will star in the film adaption of the popular Stephen King novels, Dark Tower.
The novel is a mixture of horror and fantasy and tells the story of a gunslinger who has dedicated his life to locating The Dark Tower - which is the nexus of the universe - before evil invades and ends all existence by destroying it.
Elba will play the gunslinger and McConaughey will be playing the villainous man in black.
