Zoe Saldana To Star In Luc Besson's Columbiana

HeatVision reports Zoe Saldana (Star Trek, Avatar) has caught the attention of writer/director/producer Luc Besson and has been cast in his newest action flick Columbiana. While most of the Besson produced projects hve been touch nd go this one could be interesting. Besson hs co-wrote the script with Robert Mark Kamen which is sort of exciting. Kamen previously wrote Gladiator, The Fifth Element, Taken and Kiss of The Dragon. Besson has hired Olivier Megaton who directed Transporter 3 to helm the project. While I hate the idea of another Transporter, Taxi or From Paris With Love type of film. It sounds like it could land on the end of Le Femme Nikita or The Professional since Besson is best known for developing strong female leads.

"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."
