Idris Elba has been getting playful on social media. Rumors surrounding the all new Dark Tower movie have been floating around for (literally) years.

Well, it looks like the film is finally upon us, but that won’t stop Elba from keeping fans on the edge of our seat until the very last minute.

He recently posted a teaser image on Twitter, with the caption, “I am Roland, son of Steven, son of Henry, true descendant of Arthur. And I have not forgotten. #TheDarkTowerMovie”

We know that Arthur, is actually Arthur Eld, the Dark Tower equivalent to King Arthur. His famous sword, Excalibur, was melted down and molded into revolvers that Roland Deschain (Idris Elba) carries around with him.

In addition to Elba, the movie features Matthew McConaughey, as the villainous ‘Man in Black’. Both men have not been shy bantering back and forth on Twitter about the film.

Production of The Dark Tower is underway. It is set to release in February of 2017.
