Kingsman Actress Cast in 'Lead Role' in Star Trek 3
Algerian actress and dancer Sofia Boutella, who was most recently seen as the assassin Gazelle in Kingsman: The Secret Service, was just cast in the upcoming Star Trek 3. According to Deadline, the actress is booked for a "lead role," although they couldn't offer any further details, even whether the character was on the "good" side or the "bad" side.

It's unclear what a "lead" role would mean for this franchise, considering that Star Trek and Star Trek: Into Darkness stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban and Zoe Saldana are all set to return. It seems that the only way she would have a really significant role would be as a villain, perhaps side-by-side with Idris Elba. That's pure conjecture at this point, but if she is connected to Idris Elba's character, then we would at least know that she's not a Klingon.

Star Trek 3 will be directed by Justin Lin and written by co-star Simon Pegg and Doug Jung. It is set to be released on July 8, 2016.
