Zoe Saldana Goes To “Columbiana”

Zoe Saldana (“The Losers,” “Star Trek”) is in early negotiations to join the Luc Besson-produced drama “Columbiana” for EuropaCorp says Heat Vision.

Saldana will play a stone-cold assassin who commits contract killings for her uncle’s company by day. On her time off though, she commits vigilante murders in the hope of finding the mobster responsible for her parents’ murder which she witnessed as a child in Bogota, Columbia.

Besson and Robert Mark Kamen wrote the script while Olivier Megaton (“Transporter 3”) will helm the project which begins filming later this Summer.
