Megan Fox and Zoe Saldana are signing up to kick some ass in the action/heist flick "Swindle." Uh, and that's about all we know. Sony picked up the spec script from Enzo Mileti and Scott Wilson, that will be produced by Michael De Luca ("Moneyball") and apparently this all came about because Fox and Saldana wanted to do a movie together. And why not?

Megan Fox Zoe Saldana

Talk about a hot steal! (Yeah, yeah, we know, we know...)

Megan Fox and Zoe Saldana are signing up to kick some ass in the action/heist flick "Swindle." Uh, and that's about all we know. Sony picked up the spec script from Enzo Mileti and Scott Wilson, that will be produced by Michael De Luca ("Moneyball") and apparently this all came about because Fox and Saldana wanted to do a movie together. And why not?

Fox already knows what it's like to be window dressing in action movies, so why not give her a chance to actually do something instead? As for Saldana, with "Star Trek," "Columbiana" and "The Losers" (she was the best thing in it), she's already more than proven she can deliver thrills, and has acting chops to boot.

No word yet on when this will shoot, and it will need a director first before that can happen. Until then, Saldana is busy with "Star Trek 2" and she landed Guillaume Canet's "Blood Ties" earlier today, which will shoot next month. Meanwhile, Fox seems to be on a break for a moment after spending last year busy with "Friends With Kids" (out now), "The Dictator" (out in May) and "This Is 40" (arriving at the end of the year). Salada. Fox. Swindle. Yeah, we can see the posters now... [Deadline]
