Zack Snyder’s next movie for Netflix, the sci-fi action film Rebel Moon, has cast Sofia Boutella in the lead role.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Boutella will star in Snyder’s sci-fi take on Seven Samurai. According to the synopsis, a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy is under threat from the tyrannical Regent Balisarius. A young woman must seek out warriors from nearby planets to defend her home.

Snyder wrote the screenplay with Army of the Dead writers Shay Hatten and Kurt Johnstad, based on a story by Snyder and Johnstad.

Boutella is best known for her roles in such action movies as Kingsman: The Secret Service and Atomic Blonde.

Snyder previously shared that he pitched Lucasfilm on a Star Wars movie with a similar premise as an original story set after Return of the Jedi. But that he was now developing the concept as an original movie.

Now it sounds like, after the success of Army of the Dead, this story will have a home on Netflix. Check out IGN’s review of the Army of the Dead prequel, Army of Thieves here.
