New photos from the set of The Dark Tower have hit the net, revealing Matthew McConaughey’s Man in Black.

The in-production adaptation of Stephen King’s much-loved series of books stars McConaughey as The Man in Black, a malicious, demonic figure that stands in the way of The Gunslinger (Idris Elba) and his quest toward a tower.

This adaptation has taken a while to come to fruition, so it’s great to see cameras finally rolling, and with McConaughey and Elba in the lead no less.

Attached as director and co-writer is Nikolaj Arcel, who co-wrote the Swedish Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and directed/co-wrote the period drama A Royal Affair.

The Dark Tower, also starring Katheryn Winnick, Abbey Lee, Jackie Earle Haley and Claudia Kim, is scheduled to open in the U.S. on February 17, 2017.

Check out the images of McConaughey in character below, and check out Alba’s Gunslinger beneath them.

And here’s a look at Idris Elba’s Gunslinger, images that hit the net a few weeks back:
