In not quite book news, Stephen King confirmed today that Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey will be cast in the upcoming Dark Tower movie. I rarely pay attention to the preliminary movie news because it seems to change so often. But if King himself is tweeting it, then I guess a Dark Tower move really IS happening!
