Zoe Saldana Gets Revenge in Teaser Trailer for Colombiana
05.06.11 by Ryan
Actress Zoe Saldana has earned her action pedigree after appearing in Star Trek and The Losers, but she'll become a cold-blooded assassin in the upcoming thriller Colombiana.
Directed by Olivier Megaton (Transporter 3) and produced by Luc Besson, Colombiana follows Saldana as a 12-year-old girl who witnesses her family's murder and plans revenge by — wait, no that's Besson's 1994 thriller The Professional. Make that, in Colombiana, Saldana witnesses her parent's murder as a 9-year-old and grows up to be a hired assassin who works for the French government. Nope — that's wrong — that last part was from Besson's La Femme Nikita. Instead, Saldana works for as a hitman for her uncle while she searches for the mobster that killed her parents.
The teaser trailer released by Yahoo! clears up all the confusion, and shows Saldana is all business in the movie, even when she isn't wearing very much.
Colombiana was written by Besson and Robert Mark Kamen (Taken) and co-stars Michael Vartan (Rogue) and Cliff Curtis (The Last Airbender).
