Sony Pictures has made another positive step in the Stephen King’s The Dark Tower movie; they cast Fran Kranz. Kranz will play Pimli Prentiss, “the right-hand man of the Man in Black.” Jackie Earle Haley will play Sayre, a pivotal role of the Can-toi creatures, aka Low Men. Already announced cast members included Idris Elba as The Gunslinger, Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black, and Tom Taylor as Jake Chambers.
