Zoë Saldaña’s career is humming along…
The 38-year-old half-Dominican/half-Puerto Rican American actress will star in Hummingbird, the action thriller to be directed by Marcus Kryler and Fredrik Akerström from a Black List script by John McClain.
The story centers on a female black-ops assassin (Saldaña) whose latest mark forces her to confront her true identity.
Kryler and Akerström teamed to helm the cinematic content for Electronic Arts’ Battlefield 1 video game, and their trailer has 58 million views on YouTube.
Fundamental Films picked up rights to Hummingbird in October. The company will finance and produce with Broken Road Productions.
Saldaña previously starred in the action thriller Colombiana, which earned her an Alma Award nomination. She most recently starred in Live By Night, and will next appear in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
