Tradecraft: Zoe Saldana to Star in Assassin Thriller Hummingbird
Deadline, Zoe Saldana (Colombiana) has signed on to star in the assassin thriller Hummingbird, based on a 2016 Black List screenplay by John Tyler McClain. (That's Black List as in the annual list of best unproduced scripts, as chosen by Hollywood assistants, not as in the one word NBC TV series.) Here's the official Black List logline for the movie: "A black-ops assassin’s latest mark forces her to question the truth of her identity and ultimately confront the unsettling fact that she’s more than a hired gun, she’s an entirely new breed of weapon." So... The Bourne Identity meets Hitman? Just a guess. Fundamental Films acquired the script last year and will finance and produce with Broken Road Productions.
