The long-gestating adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower is back in the news again over rumors that Matthew McConaughey may play the Man in Black and Idris Elba may play gunslinger Roland Deschain. Some people were quick to point out that part of the storyline revolves around character Susannah Odetta Holmes Dean initially hating Roland because he’s white, a storyline that would have to change in the adaptation, assuming it was ever going to be mentioned.

One person who doesn’t seem to mind if that part of the story changes for the movie is the creator of the epic, Stephen King. As he posted on Twitter last Friday, “the color of the gunslinger doesn’t matter.”
