Chris Brown's ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran has been cast in Zoe Saldana's new movie.

Honored, which centers on a group of childhood best friends, will be executive produced by the Guardians of the Galaxy star and her sisters Cisely and Mariel.

Tran will appear alongside social media stars Meghan Rienks, Sasha Pieterse, and Arden Cho, according to Variety.

“It’s gratifying to be in the company of so many talented women on this project - another sign of female empowerment rising in Hollywood,” a statement from Saldana reads.

The film will be directed by Australian filmmaker Elissa Down. It will start shooting in Los Angeles later this week (ends11Aug17).
