Michael Rooker is heading into the wastelands of Stephen King’s Dark Tower books for Amazon’s new series adaptation. Rooker’s official website announced that the actor was heading to Croatia to film the pilot episode of the series, joining Jerome Flynn, Jasper Pääkkönen (Randall Flagg) and Sam Strike (Roland) in the show.

No details are yet available on Rooker’s role in the series, which if picked up will run a thirteen episode first season. The series was originally set to tie into the Dark Tower film, but following its failure at the box office, it was reworked by Amazon to be its own direct adaptation of the books.
