Matthew McConaughey Films ‘Dark Tower’

McConaughey’s newly darkened hair matched his all-black outfit on the set of The Dark Tower in Manhattan Thursday. The Oscar-winning actor looked as fierce as ever with his hair slicked black and clad in a black coat over a black shirt, vest and matching slacks.

In The Dark Tower, an adaptation of Stephen King‘s book series of the same name, McConaughey plays the “Man in Black” Randall Flagg. Idris Elba costars in the film as Roland Deschain/ The Gunslinger.

After he wraps filming on The Dark Tower, McConaughey will be heading to his alma mater – The University of Texas – to co-teach a filmmaking class with director Gary Ross. Up to 30 students will be able to enroll in the class, which will only be open to juniors and seniors. Per a press release, McConaughey will take students “behind the scenes” of his next feature, Free State of Jones.

While McConaughey only plans to make one on-campus visit, he’ll be beamed into the classroom via video feed.

Free State of Jones is currently in select theaters, while The Dark Tower has a Feb. 17, 2017 release date.
