Zoe Saldana is reportedly one of three actresses (Scarlett Johansson and Melanie Thierry) being the other two, who are being considered for parts in Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle's art heist thriller titled Trance.

Scheduled for release in 2013, the film centers on the complications that arise when things don't go as planned for a team of thieves who mastermind a heist of an auction house that one of them works for.

Thus far, the film's ensemble cast already includes James McAvoy; Michael Fassbender was originally attached to star, but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts. Colin Firth is in talks to replace Fassbender.

Glad to see Ms Saldana continue to stay in demand. More when we know more...

    WOW I think Zoe Saldana is the new A list black actress it appears Zoe has passed Halle Berry. Zoe continues to get high profile mainstream roles with white male love interests. Go Zoe!!!!

    Glad to see an actress become in-demand for acting roles; not just non-thespianish singers seeking to expand their empire.

    I am not really a fan of Danny Boyle's films but the cast looks interesting but I would like to see someone else in this role rather than Zoe.

    Wow. Danny Boyle, now? Good for Zoe. Hope she gets it.

    Columbiana, let that be the jump-off point because I don't want to see the same Zoe in every role from here on out...
