Zoe Saldana is a cold blooded killer?

05.17.2010

While her human form was never on-screen in AVATAR, it was clear Zoe Saldana was set for stardom after that film. After having both THE LOSERS and DEATH AT A FUNERAL open post-AVATAR, the actress has signed on for her first leading role in the action film COLOMBIANA.

Saldana would star in the action-drama as a woman who witnesses her parents' murder in Bogota, Colombia and trains the rest of her life to be an assassin so she can have vengeance. She bides her time as a hitwoman-for-hire while waiting to track down the mobster responsible for her parents' death.

The film will be produced by Luc Besson (TAKEN) and directed by Olivier Megaton (TRANSPORTER 3). While the film isn't yet set up at a studio, Fox has an ongoing relationship with Besson and his Europa Corp. making that a likely destination.

Filming on COLOMBIANA is expected to begin later this summer. Still on Saldana's to-do list down the road include the planned sequels for both AVATAR and STAR TREK.

Extra Tidbit: According to the fellas at Latino Review, Saldana is only the 2nd Latina woman (after Jennifer Lopez) to take the lead in a big studio film.

OH...Let the girl be an assassin..

She's earned it. Zoe has been very faithful and deserving of all the roles she gotten. Not to mention she's been very good in every single one of them. (Star Trek and The Losers especially.) Let her have her own movie, I think she'll do an awesome job...Besides, Who else is going to be a sexy assassin capable of carrying her own movie, right now?

I like Zoe and all, but the woman seriously looks like she's dying. Like she needs to be hooked up to an IV drip full of Crisco or something. And this is coming from a small girl.

I like Zoe Saldana but my God, that plot sounds awful! I suppose there's a template library that studios use to pick movie plots because this angle has been used, used, and overused one too many times.

This sounds fucking bad ass, period. Revenge flick + Saldana + Besson + Actioner = Action bonanza!
