DARK TOWER ARSENAL

The Gunslinger may have been born into an alternate wasteland of a world where radiation and demons run amok, but when Jake (Tom Taylor) tells Roland (Idris Elba) that he’s going to like modern-day New York with its abundance of firearms – he is absolutely right. Watching the Gunslinger enter a gun shop is like watching the proverbial kid in a candy store – and now VIP Fan Auctions is returning the favor by bringing a cache of Roland’s screen-used pistols to our world. Three of Roland’s prop guns used on-screen in The Dark Tower are currently available – two comprised of hard rubber and one made of soft rubber. All of the guns have been exquisitely designed to look authentic on the screen – and key props from this long-awaited screen version of the Stephen King epic.

GUNSLINGER’S HORN O’ PLENTY

“The Dark Tower is close, now. The Crimson King awaits. Soon Roland will raise the Horn of Eld. And blow,” tweeted author Stephen King back in May 2016, hinting at things to come in the long-awaited film adaptation of his classic book seres. The Horn of Eld holds tremendous significance in The Dark Tower – and in the film version of the epic tale, it serves as one of Hollywood’s coolest “easter eggs.” Legends tells us the horn once belonged to Arthur Eld, the ancient king from which Roland’s line of Gunslingers – as well as the wicked Crimson King – are descendants. It’s also key to allowing Roland to enter the fabled Tower. The on-screen nod to the Horn of Eld can be seen poking out of Roland’s (Idris Elba) satchel. VIP Fan Auctions is offering this amazing piece of movie – and literary – history. Click here for photos of the Horn of Eld – as well as Roland’s flask (also included in the auction), from which a thirsty Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor) nearly gets himself shot while guzzling upon his entry to Mid-World! But don’t wait – this auction ends soon and Taheen Trackers are coming.

 

DREAM HOUSE

One of the most important drawings in Jake Chambers’ (Tom Taylor) sketch book is of the Dutch Hill Mansion (pictured) – a dilapidated old house in Brooklyn that holds a portal to Mid-World, as well as some very angry floorboards. It’s a pivotal moment in the Dark Tower when Jake turns to the Internet to learn the location of the house as he embarks on the journey to meet the Gunslinger (Idris Elba) and face-off against the wicked wizard Walter (Matthew McConaughey). The original Dutch Hill Mansion sketches featured in the film version of The Dark Tower are now available at VIP Fan Auctions to the fan who places the winning bid.

KING’S HORN

Fans of Stephen King’s classic book series The Dark Tower know the tremendous significance of the Horn of Eld. The horn once belonged to Arthur Eld, the ancient king from which Roland’s line of Gunslingers – as well as the Crimson King – are descendants. It’s also key to allowing Roland to enter the Dark Tower. The on-screen presence of the Horn of Eld poking out of Roland’s (Idris Elba) satchel (pictured above) in the film adaptation of The Dark Tower was the subject of much speculation among fans. Ultimately, it may turn out to be one of the best “Easter Eggs” in Hollywood, even if its presence in the hit film remains a bit of a mystery. VIP Fan Auctions is offering this amazing piece of movie – and literary – history. Click here for photos of the Horn of Eld – as well as Roland’s flask (also included in the auction), which young Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor) nearly gets himself shot while drinking from upon his entry to Mid-World!

 

‘Dark Tower’ Movie Casting News

Dark Tower Movie

Dark Tower has been making moves recently in terms of casting. The screen adaption of Stevn King’s acclaimed novel series already locked in Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey to pick up two of the lead roles. Elba will be starring as Roland Deschain, the last gunslinger. McConaughey will be starring as the infamous Man in Black, Roland’s nemesis.

Recently The Hollywood Reporter revealed that former Dollhouse and Much Ado about nothing star, Fran Kranz, will be suiting up for Dark Tower in the role of Pimli. Pimli is the right hand man to The Man in Black.

He’s a pivotal character and most reports will agree that Kranz is the perfect man for the job.

Ethan Anderton from /Film wrote, “My hope is that Kranz isn’t just being brought in as a sort of comic relief sidekick to the villain, like some kind of bumbling or wisecracking henchman.” I think we can all agree with that, and based off the casting decision, it’s not likely something we will need to worry about.

Kranz is also very well known for his role Cabin in the Woods.

Dark Tower is set to hit theaters in February of 2017. The compelling cast also includes the like of Jackie Earle Haley, Tom Taylor, and Abbey Lee. It is directed by Nikolaj Arcei, and produced by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer.
