Claudia Kim, who played Dr. Helen Cho in 2015's "Avengers: Age of Ultron," has joined the cast of Sony's adaptation of Stephen King's seminal "The Dark Tower" series.
According to The Tracking Board, Kim will likely play Arra Champignon, a well-intentioned and mysterious psychic who might be out of place in the mystical, Old Western landscape of "The Dark Tower." She joins stars Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, who star as Roland Deschain, AKA the Gunslinger, and the nefarious and powerful Man in Black, respectively.
Written by Nikolaj Arcel, Anders Thomas Jensen, Akiva Goldsman, and Jeff Pinkner, "The Dark Tower" is planned as a trilogy, the first of which will open February 17, 2017, directed by Arcel. There are also plans to accompany the films with a complimentary television series. "Vikings" star Katheryn Winnick recently joined the project's cast, which also features Jackie Earle Haley, Fran Kranz, Abbey Lee, and Tom Taylor.
