Elba gun­ning for new role

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket -

Idris Elba may be about to enjoy some bul­let time with the news the Brit is the fron­trun­ner to play lead char­ac­ter Roland Deschain in the first en­try of a planned Dark Tower fran­chise.

The Luther star (pic­tured, right) would sad­dle up as tit­u­lar hero The Gun­slinger in the long ges­tat­ing adap­ta­tion of Stephen King’s se­ries of nov­els.

Ru­mours also sug­gest Will Smith may have Bat­man in his sights as Warner Bros are toy­ing with the idea of in­clud­ing his Sui­cide Squad char­ac­ter Dead­shot in their new stand­alone flick for the Dark Knight.
