In 2015, Sony Pictures announced they were working with Media Rights Capital to fast-track The Dark Tower adaptation for an early 2017 release - though the filmhad since been delayed to August 2017. He continues to accuse director Nikolaj Arcel of wasting the two leads in Elba and McConaughey, and concludes: "This unholy mess shouldn't happen to a king, let alone a paying customer".
The movie certainly had potential.
It really is too bad that we still don't have the film adaptation that The Dark Towerseries rightly deserves. The Man in Black is evil personified. Plus, the books are popular, so you presumably have a built-in audience. He spends his time sketching what he sees when he sleeps and goes so far to protect those drawings as to punch a schoolmate who tries to take them.
The Dark Tower is a sci-fi horror western action-thriller fantasy epic - if there is such a thing. His realization is cut short by visitors.

McConaughey has previously said that he has been offered roles for both Marvel and DC Comics movie, yet he's turned them all down. Mazzara replaced Frank Darabont as showrunner for Season 2 of the hit post-apocalypse series and oversaw almost a quarter of the show's existing episodes.
I should admit upfront that my personal knowledge of the Dark Towerseries is fairly limited, so I can't speak to how closely the movie follows the books with true expertise.
