The film adaptation of Stephen King‘s The Dark Tower series is hitting the big screen on February 17, 2017. At this point we know Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey will star in the leads as Roland Deschain, the Gunslinger, and the Man in Black, respectively.

It’s not clear where the film starts, though.

The book series spanned eight novels and was also adapted into comics by Marvel. The novel starts off with Roland as he searches for the Dark Tower, in hopes of preserving his magical world, which is falling apart.

In an earlier interview King talked to Entertainment Weekly about bringing the series he created 20 some years ago to the big screen, saying, “When you think about it, I started these stories as a senior in college, sitting in a little sh—y cabin beside the river in Maine, and finally this thing is actually in pre-production now.”

King announced the film in March, posting the first line from the first book:
