She’s Hollywood’s go to actress for sci-fi roles, and Zoe Saldana may be adding another badass space chick to her resume. THR has learned the actress is in talks for the role of Gamora in James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy. Were the deal to go through, Saldana would join the already cast Chris Pratt (Star-Lord) and Dave Bautista (Drax the Destroyer).
Gamora is described as, “the green-skinned humanoid who is the last of a species that was exterminated by a race known as the Badoon. She also happens to be a skilled assassin.” Oh, she just so happens to be an assassin, how convenient. All of this sounds right up Saldana’s alley. She’s been blue-skinned and mo-capped for Avatar and will again for Avatar 2, she’s kicked ass in a mini-skirt as Uhura in Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness, plus she’s been an assassin in Colombiana. Hell, I think they’ve found their girl, I hope she signs.
Guardian of the Galaxy is set to open August 1, 2014. What do you think of Zoe as Gamora?
