With the release of The Mummy this weekend, Tom Cruise is sharing the spotlight with his costar, Sofia Boutella. She is quickly becoming one of the most popular actresses in Hollywood, already part of two successful blockbusters: Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond.

Now it looks like Boutella is about to set her attention towards the small screen, as she has just joined the HBO adaptation of Ray Bradbury's classic novel, Fahrenheit 451, which takes place in a dystopian future where books are burned. (451 degrees Fahrenheit is the temperature at which paper burns.)

Boutella is joining fellow stars Michael B. Jordan and Michael Shannon. Jordan will be playing the main character, Montag, a fireman whose job is to burn literature. Shannon plays Beatty, Montag's mentor and adviser. Boutella plays Clarisse, who will turn Montag's world upside down by making him question the wisdom of censorship. The project is also currently being directed and written by Ramin Bahrani.

There is currently no release date for Fahrenheit 451. The Mummy opens on June 9, 2017.
