Zoe Saldana (Star Trek, Avatar) and Idris Elba (The Unborn) are in talks to join The Losers, an adaptation of the Vertigo/DC Comics book. From The Hollywood Reporter:
The actors will join Jeffrey Dean Morgan for the action film, which follows a Special Forces team betrayed by its handler and left for dead. The “losers” regroup in the interest of revenge, the opportunity to remove their names from a secret CIA death list and to conduct covert operations against the CIA and its interests.
Elba will play a character named Roque, the group’s scarred second-in-command who is motivated by money. Saldana will be Aisha, a cold-blooded loose cannon.
Peter Berg and James Vanderbilt worked on the script.
This sounds interesting, although Warner Bros have chosen a director who hasn’t really proven himself yet. Sylvain White previously directed Stomp the Yard and a few straight to video films, but I suppose everyone has to start somewhere. Peter Berg (Hancock) and James Vanderbilt (Spider-Man 4) have worked on the script so it should turn out okay.
