You seen him in The Raid and Fast and Furious 6 and now he will be joining the 3rd installment of the new “Star Trek” Franchise. Martial artist Joe Taslim has officially joined Star Trek Beyond. Taslim joins fellow new comers Idris Elba and Sofia Boutella, and much like them, there is currently little or nothing to know about his role. Elba is reportedly the main villain of the flick and according to reports Taslim plays “a key part opposite Elba.”

So far what is known about the story is that it involves the crew of the Enterprise in the middle of a five-year mission to explore new worlds and meet new alien cultures. Many believe this will lead to possibly seeing the Klingons and them playing a bigger role this time around.

Star Trek Beyond is being directed by Justin Lin, and is written by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung. Expect it to hit theaters next year on July 8th.
