Sofia Boutella

  1. Gal Gadot, Ben-Hur, 2015.   The Algerian Boutella (of Star Trek Beyond),, Moran Atias, Nazanin Boniadi and Natalia Warner were all in the (fifth) Biblical re-make frame for Esther. Tehran-born, London-raised Boniadi won the flop – until her schedule interfered. Gadot’s next rôle: Wonder Woman!
  2. Zazie Beetz,  Deadpool 2, 2017.    A hunt for a new director and for the girl known as Domino was happening  sumultaneously. David Leitch won the chair (after his Deadpool short, No Good Deed) and the Berlin-born trilingual American stunner known as Zazie won the girl. From: Boutella, Lizzy Caplan, Canadian Mackenzie Davis, The Knick’s Eve Hewson, Sienna Miller, Kansas City singer Janelle Monáe, Kelley Baywatch Rohrbach, Ruby Rose (from Orange Is The New Black), Kerry Washington, Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Plus Spectre’s Bond GirlsDutch Sylvia Hoeks and Mexican Stephanie SigmanBeetz was so great, she deserved her own movie… and not just joining the guys again in X Force.
  3. Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), 2019.  For Huntress/Helena Bertinelli in Margot Robbie’s all-gal gang, MEW beat off The Mummy actresss Boutella; Night Hunter‘s Alexandra Daddario, How I Met Your Mother‘s Cristin Milioti; and Margaret Qualley, Tarantino’s find for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. (Kristen Stewart as Batgirl/Barbara Gordon was axed from the script).
