Sofia Boutella has been signed to appear in Star Trek 3.
The Algerian-born actress was last seen as a “blade-legged assassin” in Kingsman: The Secret Service.
According to Deadline, Boutella has a lead role in the movie, but there is no word yet as to what that role would be or whether she’s on the side of the Federation or aligned with/a villain. One could easily see her as a Klingon or Romulan.
