Now that we’ve all ogled Zoe Saldana’s goodies in the exploitation schlockfest Colombiana, the actress can step off of the publicity circuit and start work on something new. What’s that going to be? I’m glad you asked. According to THR Saldana is moving on a project called Dominion that’s something of a supernatural thriller. It’s about a creature that is a hybrid of an angel and a human, and Saldana seems to be perfect for the role because, well, she’s really pretty. Some might say angelic.

It’s coming from a pitch by Dean McCreary and Chester Hastings, a relatively new-on-the-scene writing team who have credits in two upcoming films, one a familiar sounding thriller called You’re My Angel, and the other a film about a video store clerk who worships Sam Raimi called Fanboy.

In a first for Saldana, this job will force her to rely on a bit more than her looks and her acting chops. She’s going to have to do some decision making as well, because this time she has a producing credit. It’s always tough to predict exactly what somebody who is being called a producer will be doing, or how much say they will have over a film, but this hints at the fact that the actress is looking to take more control over the projects she’s working on. It looks like after being a part of a couple of blockbuster franchises-to-be in Avatar and Star Trek, Saldana is becoming something of a celebrity. Hopefully she makes wise decisions from here on out, because Colombiana was pretty bad. Maybe if she was a producer on that she could have ordered another rewrite.
