Michael Vartan joins Zoe Saldana in Luc Besson's Columbiana
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I was a big fan of the TV show ‘Alias’ back in the day, but oddly enough, I thought the worst part of the show was Jennifer Gardner. But the show had a lot of great supporting actors, most notably Bradley Cooper and Michael Vartan. Cooper, of course, has gone on to international superstardom and has built quite an impressive resume. Vartan on the other hand, has not been able to match Cooper’s success. But maybe that will change and today Michael Vartan has signed on to star in COLUMBIANA alongside Zoe Saldana.
The film is about a young woman (Saldana) that witnesses the murder of her family and grows up to be an ice-cold killer. Vartan will play her oblivious boyfriend that provides her link to the real world. The story is from the mind of Luc Besson (as if you couldn’t tell) and will be directed by Olivier Megaton (TRANSPORTER 3).
