Abbey Lee to Join The Dark Tower Alongside Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey
The eagerly anticipated adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower looks to add a new face to its already impressive cast. Directed by Nikolaj Arcel, Abbey Lee is in negotiations to star as the female lead Tirana.
Lee will star opposite Idris Elba, who will play protagonist and gunslinger Roland Deschain, as well as Matthew McConaughey, playing the villain Man in Black. Lee is coming off of her role in 2015's massive hit Mad Max: Fury Road.
Sony is distributing what is intended as the first in a franchise of Dark Tower films. A TV series is also being developed by MRC. The first film will focus on book one, The Gunslinger, which establishes the relationship between Roland and protege Jake Chambers, who has yet to be cast.
