Zoe Saldana

The Rhode Island Film & TV Office has announced that the indie feature comedy, Infinitely Polar Bear, which star Zoe Saldana and Mark Ruffalo, has begun filming in Rhode Island. 

The film, which is set in 1978, focuses on a bi-polar father trying to take care of his two young daughters while his wife tries to get her MBA. Amidst wild mood swings and unique challenges, the four of them manage to figure out a new and unconventional way to be a family.

Ruffalo and Saldana play the couple.

Written and directed by Maya Forbes (Diary of a Wimpy Kid), the film is being produced by Paper Street Films, Park Pictures and Bad Robot (J.J. Abrams' company). 

Shooting is expected to take six weeks in and around Providence, RI.

The project was first announced at least 2 years ago, and is finally moving forward.

Up next for Zoe, in addition to the much talked about Nina Simone film she stars in, she also has the ensemble crime drama Blood Ties, and the thriller Out Of The Furnace. Most recently, she was in talks to play the female lead in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy big screen adaptation.

    I forgot where i read this but initally Halle was also up for this role, don't know if Saldana beat her out for it or what happened but I think this would have been a different role for Halle..
