Sofia Boutella Joins The Secret Service
Matthew Vaughn's latest finds a femme fatale

29 October 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Deadline

With the cameras now rolling on Matthew Vaughn’s latest dip into the twisted comic mind of Mark Millar (and in this case Dave Gibbons) for The Secret Service, the writer-director is adding another relative newcomer to the cast. Algerian model-turned-actress Sofia Boutella is aboard to play a scheming villain.

The Secret Service is a Millar comic about an old-school Bond type (Colin Firth) who takes his street-smart nephew (Taron Egerton) under his wing to train him in the family business. First mission: foiling a celebrity kidnap that’s part of a master plan by Samuel L. Jackson. Boutella will play his co-conspirator, joining a cast that also includes Sophie Cookson, Tom Prior, Jordan Long and Michael Caine.

Vaughn has written the screenplay with his usual cohort Jane Goldman, and the film is set up at Fox, who emerged triumphant after their own kick-ass battle for the rights.

Boutella, who has graced catwalks, appeared in music videos and danced on stage with the likes of Madonna, has slowly been making the move to film and TV, largely in France, though she also played Eva in StreetDance 2. She’ll pop up again in Monsters: Dark Continent, which is due out next year. The Secret Service is set to hit our screens on November 14.
