Colombiana – Saldana joins cast

Transporter 3 director Olivier Megaton kinda sounds more like a flamboyant transformer than a movie director, but film-maker he is. His latest project is the Luc Besson produced Colombiana, which has an odd name but is getting an impressive leading lady in the shape of action-star-de-jour Zoe Saldana.

The story, which was written by Besson alongside Taken co-writer Robert Mark Kamen, sees a young woman living in Bogotá whose parents are killed in front of her. Becoming a assassin and enforcer for her uncle she sets about getting revenge on the people responsible for destroying her family.

Sounds like an interesting movie and Besson’s action writing can be right up there at times. With Saldana as the ass-kicker crowds should follow for the summer 2011 release.
