Zoe Saldana, who is featured in big sci-fi franchises like Avatar and Star Trek, has recently signed another Marvel Studio's superhero film Guardians Of The Galaxy. But the actress says that doing all three sci-fi films is just a coincidence and it was not a conscious attempt by her.
Talking to Contact Music, Zoe Saldana said, "I haven't thought about it that way, up until this Star Trek promo tour actually, when it was brought to my attention. I read scripts and if I respond well to the story and especially to the character that they want me to consider or that I'm going after, that's what I do."
Zoe Saldana added, "And then all of a sudden I stop and I go back and go, 'Oh my god! These three things have so much in common', and then I just keep going. It's not something that I'm strategically looking after or that I'm finding because I'm avoiding other things. I guess I gravitate a lot towards these kinds of characters that are very physically active."
The actress is featured alongside Chris Pratt, Michael Rooker and Dave Bautista in Guardians Of The Galaxy, which will go on the floors this summer and will be released in June 2014. Directed by James Gunn, the movie is all about a US pilot, who ends up in space in the middle of a universal conflict and goes on the run with futuristic ex-cons who have something everyone wants.
Zoe Saldana said, "I really like the director, James Gunn, I responded very, very well to the script. I loved the casting decisions they've been making so far. I can only hope we kick a** and we have a great time while we're putting the film together." She added, "And that the result of that, the audience will respond very positively to it and hopefully we'll be able to make just as much as Iron Man 3 is making right now."
