Sofia Boutella has been announced to star in Zack Snyder’s upcoming space epic, Rebel Moon.
The film falls under an overall deal that Snyder signed with Netflix earlier this year. The Justice League director is co-writing the script for the new picture with Shay Hatten and Kurt Johnstad.
Rebel Moon follows the story of a peaceful planet put under threat by the armies of tyrannical Regent Balisarius. Desperate for help, the colony sends a young woman across the galaxy to secure allies in the fight against the tyrant.
Deadline first shared news of Boutella’s casting.
Snyder and his wife, Deborah Snyder, are producing the new feature through their production company, The Stone Quarry. Wesley Coller will also produce, alongside Eric Newman for Grand Electric.
Boutella’s break out role came in 2012’s StreetDance 2 and its subsequent sequel, StreetDance 3D. She became well known for portraying Gazelle in Kingsman: The Secret Service, and later featured in Star Trek Beyond.
