And the beat goes on for Ms Zoe Saldana... Seems like she's signing up for a new project every month.

She'll be Bradley Cooper's girl in the currently-shooting plagiarism thriller The Words, and is now reportedly negotiating to star opposite another white dude Mark Ruffalo, in a marital drama produced by J.J. Abrams, titled Infinitely Polar Bear.

An infinitely interesting title.

Screenwriter Maya Forbes (who penned scripts for Monsters vs. Aliens, and The Larry Sanders Show) will direct the film, which New York magazine describes as "the dramatic version of Mr. Mom, albeit one on Abilify. Ruffalo plays a bipolar husband and father who goes off his medication, and then loses both his sanity and job while struggling to hold onto his marriage. Saldana would play his put-upon wife, who, after going back to work, ends up moving out of the house, leaving him with the kids."

I wonder if Mark Ruffalo will have as much fun with Zoe in this as he did with Yaya DaCosta in The Kids Are Alright

Shooting will begin in September.

And in anticipation of the usual "is she black" debates that often follow in the comments section whenever we post anything about Zoe Saldana, I'll throw this quote from the woman, into the pot, if only to add more for you to stir :):

"When I go to the D.R., the press in Santo Domingo always asks, "¿Qué te consideras, dominicana o americana?" (What do you consider yourself, Dominican or American?) I don't understand it, and it's the same people asking the same question. So I say, time and time again, "Yo soy una mujer negra." ("I am a black woman.") [They go,] "Oh, no, tú eres trigueñita." ("Oh no, you are 'dark skinned'") I'm like, "No! Let's get it straight, yo soy una mujer negra." ("I am a black woman.")"
