Zoe Saldana to play assassin?
Zoe Saldana is in talks to star as a cold-blooded killer in Columbiana.
The drama, produced and written by Luc Besson and his Taken writing partner Robert Mark Kamen, tells the story of a young woman who, after witnessing her parents' murder as a child in Bogota, grows up to be an assassin, according to Heat Vision Blog.
She works for her uncle as a hitman by day, but her personal time is spent conducting vigilante murders that she hopes will lead her to her ultimate goal - revenge on the mobster responsible for her killing her parents.
The movie is due to start filming in late summer and will be directed by Olivier Megaton, of Transporter 3.
The film is set in Latin America and the US, and Avatar star Zoe would play the lead.
