Zoe Saldana eyes role as assassin in 'Colombiana' (exclusive)

Zoe Saldana is in early negotiations to star in "Colombiana," a drama that Luc Besson is producing under his Europa Corp. The project is slated for late-summer start with Olivier Megaton ("Transporter 3") directing.

Written by Besson and Robert Mark Kamen, "Colombiana" 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 soared to fame in the past year by starring in "Avatar" and "Star Trek." Her other recent credits include "The Losers" and "Death at a Funeral."

The actress, repped by ICM and Brillstein Entertainment Partners, next stars in Screen Gems' "Takers."
