Idris Elba goes deep into his role to thrill and tease Stephen King’s fans with a new The Dark Tower teaser pic.
Talk about really getting in the role! Idris Elba seems to have embraced his Gunslinger side quite authentically. The movie adaptation of Stephen King’s Gunslinger series started off earlier this year. The first movie, The Dark Tower, is currently in production.

Many would agree that after playing the role of the demented detective Luther, Idris Elba was the perfect choice to be cast as the Gunslinger Roland Deschain himself. Directed by Nikolaj Arcel, the movie is currently under wraps and not much is known or revealed about the plot of the movie.
That is until Idris Elba just posted a picture on his Twitter feed. Featuring a poster, the picture contains the phrase, “Remember the Face of your Father”. Accompanying the picture is a caption by Elba himself, I am Roland, son of Steven, son of Henry, true descendant of Arthur. And I have not forgotten. #TheDarkTowerMovie
The movie fans who have not read the books might not make much out of it except the introduction of Roland. He has given his father's name, Henry and told us that he is a descendant of Arthur as in King Arthur.
However, the fans of the book series are thrilled. The message contains a lot of meaning and stature for the readers. Reading fans would know what remembering the face of one’s father means. In the book, this phrase is used for the man who are straying from their duty or are exhibiting immoral conduct.
