An action movie starring Megan Fox and Zoe Saldana? That might sell some tickets.
The action beauties are set to break hearts and bones as they've signed on for the lead roles in the new heist thriller, "Swindle," according to Deadline.
Both ladies are veterans of the blockbuster action genre, having starred in "Transformers" and "Avatar," respectively, but this time they're leaving the boys behind and taking center stage. Fox and Saldana (sounds like a cop show, doesn't it?) had apparently been looking for a project to work on together and "Swindle" has obliged.
Details on the plot are being kept under wraps, but we have a feeling it will involve the two stunning stars shooting guns, crashing cars and seducing idiot men in order to gain access to secret rooms. Hopefully, anyway.
Paramount recently acquired the "Swindle" spec script by Enzo Mileti and Scott Wilson, with Fox and Saldana (we're telling you, it's a cop show!) set to co-produce along with "Moneyball" producer Michael De Luca.
Megan Fox seems to be doing just fine with her post-"Transformers" career, as she's currently starring in "Friends With Kids" and will next be seen in "The Dictator," opening May 11, and Judd Apatow's "This Is Forty," opening Dec. 21. Meanwhile, Zoe Saldana is currently shooting J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek" sequel and will next be seen opposite Bradley Cooper in "The Words," opening Sept. 21.
It sounds like things are just getting started on "Swindle," so a start date is probably a bit of a ways off yet. In the meantime, the search is on for someone to direct this glorious piece of cinematic eye candy.
