The first trailer for Zoe Saldana’s next flick, due out on September 2nd, Colombiana has arrived and it certainly has all the hallmarks of a Luc Besson produced film. Starring alongside Michael Vartan (Alias) and Callum Blue (Smallville), the feature puts Saldana in the role of an assassin trained from childhood. The Sony feature has some solid credits behind it and is directed by Olivier Megaton, who was last seen with Hitman and Transporter 3. The film is based on a screenplay by Besson and Robert Mark Kamen, who has all three Transporter films to his credits as well as Taken and quite a few other very solid films over the last thirty years.
Plot summary: Zoe Saldana will 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.
