Three sci-fi films just a coincidence for Zoe Saldana
Los Angeles: After signing Marvel Studio`s superhero film ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’, actress Zoe Saldana has become part of three big sci-fi franchises, including ‘Avatar’ and ‘Star Trek’, but insists it was not planned.
"I haven`t thought about it that way, up until this `Star Trek` promo tour actually, when it was brought to my attention. I read scripts and if I respond well to the story and especially to the character that they want me to consider or that I`m going after, that`s what I do," contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.
"And then all of a sudden I stop and I go back and go, `Oh my god! These three things have so much in common`, and then I just keep going. It`s not something that I`m strategically looking after or that I`m finding because I`m avoiding other things. I guess I gravitate a lot towards these kinds of characters that are very physically active," she added.
‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’, which also star Chris Pratt, Michael Rooker and Dave Bautista, will go on the floors this summer and will be released in June 2014.
The 34-year-old said: "I really like the director, James Gunn, I responded very, very well to the script. I loved the casting decisions they`ve been making so far. I can only hope we kick a** and we have a great time while we`re putting the film together."
"And that the result of that, the audience will respond very positively to it and hopefully we`ll be able to make just as much as `Iron Man 3` is making right now," she added.
