Luc Besson + Zoe Saldana = 'Colombiana'?

Zoe Saldana is in early negotiations to star in "Colombiana," a drama that Luc Besson is producing under his Europa Corp. The project is slated for late-summer start with Olivier Megaton ("Transporter 3") directing.

Written by Besson and Robert Mark Kamen, "Colombiana" is set in Latin America and the U.S. 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.

Okay, so the story is nothing we haven't heard before, but Luc Besson has worked on a lot of movies I've really enjoyed including Léon, The Fifth Element, Point of No Return & Nikita (basically the same movie, but whatever). I know these films were made a long time ago, BUT Besson had his fingers in lots of other pies like the Transporter series and Taken, and even Ong-bak; not exactly timeless pieces of cinema but omg sometimes the action was amaaaazing. It may be unrealistic for me to hope for a balance of action and comedy rather than gratuitous violence and gun fights, but I'll do it anyway.

Would anyone else be game for Zoe staring in a Luc Besson film? And did anyone see The Losers or Death at a Funeral? I'm not keeping up to date on my girl's stuff...
