Zoe Saldana is in early talks to play the lead in the action-drama Columbia. Directed by Olivier Megaton (Transporter 3) from a script by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen (Taken), here’s how Heat Vision breaks down the plot:
“Columbiana” is set in Latin America and the U.S. Saldana would play a young woman who, after witnessing her parents’ murder as a child in Bogota, grows up to be a stone-cold assassin. She works for her uncle as a hitman by day, but her personal time is spent engaging in vigilante murders that she hopes will lead her to her ultimate target: the mobster responsible for her parents’ death.
Saldana recently co-starred in The Losers and Death at a Funeral and will next be seen in the crime-thriller Takers. The actress was in two of the biggest hits of last year with Star Trek and Avatar.
