According to Heat Vision, Columbiana is written by Besson and Robert Mark Kamen and 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.
The project begins production in late summer.
