Sofia Boutella Enlists for The Secret Service

Now in production, Matthew Vaughn’s adaptation of the Mark Millar comic series The Secret Service has added Sofia Boutella to the cast, Deadline reports. She joins a cast that includes Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Michael Caine, Samuel L. Jackson and Sophie Cookson.

Like his previous Millar adaptation, Kick-Ass, Matthew Vaughn has co-written the screenplay with Jane Goldman and will also direct and produce the project through his MARV Films banner.

The series, illustrated by Dave Gibbons, tells the story of a British secret agent, Jake (Firth), who recruits and begins to train his rebellious nephew, Gary (Egerton).

Although she’s not yet a big name domestically, Boutella recently headlined France’s Streetdance 2 and is set to star in the upcoming Monsters: Dark Continent. In The Secret Service, she’ll play the film’s lead female antagonist.

The Secret Service is set for a November 14, 2014 release.
