Elba, Saldana Join “Losers” Club

Idris Elba and Zoe Saldana are in negotiations to join “The Losers” for Warner Bros.Pictures and Silver Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

An adaptation of the Vertigo/DC Comics, the story follows a Special Forces team betrayed by its handler and left for dead. The “losers” regroup in the interest of revenge, the opportunity to remove their names from a secret CIA death list and to conduct covert operations against the CIA and its interests.

Elba will play a character named Roque, the group’s scarred second-in-command who is motivated by money. Saldana will be Aisha, a cold-blooded loose cannon. Jeffrey Dean Morgan also stars.

Peter Berg and James Vanderbilt worked on the script while Sylvain White is directing.
