Cape Town – Shooting of the long-awaited Stephen King film adaption of Dark Tower has begun.

The movie which stars Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey is being filmed right here in the Mother City.

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.

Joining Elba and McConaughey is Canadian actress Katheryn Winnick.

Best known for her roles in Bones and Vikings, Winnick's character in the film is to be revealed.
