Just as her action movie Colombiana opens across the country, Zoe Saldana has set up the supernatural thriller Dominion at Paramount.
The pitch hails from Dean McCreary and Chester Hastings and while plot details remain sketchy, the story centers on a woman (Saldana) who is half-human, half-angel.
Saldana will also serve as a producer on the project, alongside Robbie Brenner. Brenner is a producer on the Gerard Butler drama Machine Gun Preacher, the story of drug-dealing biker-turned-children’s crusader Sam Childers and it was on that project where she first crossed paths with McCreary and Hastings; the duo had worked on an earlier incarnation of Childers’ story.
Hastings and McCreary, both repped by Gersh, co-wrote You’re My Angel, a thriller from 4 Horsemen Films that is in development. They also co-wrote Fanboy, a short film about a video store employee who is the world’s biggest Sam Raimi fan. The unreleased comedy features turns from Raimi and J.K. Simmons, who play themselves.

Saldana, repped by ICM, is best known for playing Neytiri in Avatar and Uhura in Star Trek. She recently wrapped production on The Words, a drama with Bradley Cooper, and is attached to star opposite Mark Ruffalo in Infinitely Polar Bear, an indie drama that is being produced by J.J. Abrams.
