Zoe Saldana to star in Luc Besson’s Columbiana
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Zoe Saldana is set to piggy-back off the sexiness she showed in the action film THE LOSERS with a turn as a deadly assassin for the Luc Besson produced film COLUMBIANA. In it, she will play a woman that witnessed the murder of her parents and grew up to be a cold killer. When not working as a full time hitman, she’s running around town committing vigilante murders on her way to her quest for revenge on the mobster that killed her parents. It almost sounds like a superhero movie with a morally ambiguous hero.
The basic plot isn’t anything we haven’t seen before, but Saldana was great in THE LOSERS and I’m sure with Besson involved, there will be some great action sequences. His TRANSPORTER 3 director, Olivier Megaton will be directing from a script Besson co-wrote.
