Zoe Saldana

It is about time that gorgeous actress Zoe Saldana finally get some recognition. In the last year or so she has gained a huge amount of recognition thanks to her roles in Avatar and Star Trek, but she’s been in the business for a long, long time. Some may remember her as far back as Center Stage or even box office smash Pirates of the Caribbean.

Heat Vision exclusively reports that Saldana is in early negotiations for the lead role in the assassin flick, Columbiana, written by Luc Besson. Apparently, 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.

I haven’t seen it yet, but she looked pretty hot wielding a gun in the recent movie The Losers, so this could be another hot role for her as well.
