Mercedes Mone has joined the cast of the upcoming action-thriller The Collective. Deadline reports that Mone and Paul Ben-Victor (Plane) have been added to the cast of the Ton DeNucci-directed film. The two join a cast that includes Lucas Till, Ruby Rose, Tyrese Gibson, and Don Johnson.

The film is described by the site as follows:

A group of righteous assassins called The Collective take aim at a highly sophisticated human trafficking ring backed by a network of untouchable billionaires. With their backs against the wall, The Collective has no choice but to put their most important mission in the hands of rookie assassin, Sam Alexander (Till). What he lacks in experience he makes up for in savvy, grit, and a keen ability to improvise in the most dangerous situations. He is aided on his journey by Hugo (Gibson) and Liam (Johnson), former CIA operatives turned rogue vigilantes. They face off against Daisy (Rose), the cunning general manager of this evil, clandestine organization. Sam must prove to himself, Liam and Hugo that he’s Collective material on this life-or-death, take-no-prisoners mission.

Ben-Victor will play Miro Lindell, a human trafficking auctioneer to an underground cabal of billionaires. Mone is playing Nikita, the “blade wielding company pit-bull and chief of security” for Miro.

The script comes from Matt Rogers and Jason James and is set up at Yale Entertainment. Yale’s Jordan Yale Levine and Jordan Beckerman are producing the film along with Richard Switzer in association with Dawn’s Light Media.

Mone, real name Mercedes Varnado, previously had an appearance in The Mandalorian season two as Koska Reeves.
