With Idris Elba as gunslinger Roland Deschain and Matthew McConaughey opposite as his quarry, the Man in Black, “The Dark Tower” adapts part of one of Stephen King’s best known story arcs.

Even so, it’s set to become not only “very satisfying for fans because it’s deeply loyal to the underlying material” but also successfull in introducing “a whole bunch of new fans,” Rothman told Collider at the Italian premiere of third “Da Vinci Code” thriller “Inferno.”

The film is also set to establish a spin-off TV series exploring character origins for 2018.

Directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks, Felicity Jones, and Ben Foster, “Inferno” commences a worldwide general release schedule from October 12.
