Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series has had a pretty rough road in terms of adaptation. A film franchise with a TV prequel series accompanying it was in the works, but when the 2017 film bombed at the box office, the future of the franchise was in doubt. Now, an Amazon series is in production, and a Game of Thrones fan favorite has just joined the cast.
Jerome Flynn, known for playing Bronn on Game of Thrones, has just been cast in the new series. He joins Sam Strike (Nightflyers) and Jasper Pääkkönen (Vikings), who have been cast as the Gunslinger and the Man In Black respectively. It is currently unknown what role Flynn will play.
The pilot is still in the development stage and won’t go into production for a while, but it is expected to tell the Gunslinger’s origin story and follow a different path that was supposed to be established with the film.
Are you excited for the new Dark Tower series?
