Matthew McConaughey has come forward to explain why he turned down a role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 for the opportunity to star as the Man in Black in Sony’s upcoming film adaptation of The Dark Tower.
In an interview with Playboy (via io9) the actor said he’d “feel like an amendment” if he joined James Gunn’s forthcoming sequel. “I like Guardians of the Galaxy, but what I saw was ‘It’s successful, and now we’ve got room to make a colorful part for another big-name actor.'”
