Sofia Boutella has been cast in the third “Star Trek” film at Paramount Pictures, Skydance Productions and Bad Robot.
Boutella, who played the sword-footed assassin Gazelle in Matthew Vaughn’s “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” will play a mysterious but major role in the next Trek film.
Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin and John Chu are reprising their roles in the film, but plot details are under wraps.
Justin Lin directs from a script by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung. Shooting is slated to begin this Summer ahead of a July 8th 2016 release.
