Well, now that I’ve stretched to within an inch of my life for a pun, I should tell ya the actress has joined Christian Bale in this Black List script-cum-movie, as the Oscar winner’s love interest.
The project will follow the story of Bale’s character and his younger brother (Casey Affleck), two fellas with dreams of a better life than they one they live in the economically depressed Rust Belt. Alas, those hopes are put on the back burner after Bale lands in prison and Affleck is lured into one of the most violent crime rings in the Northeast.
Of course, it’s up to big brother to come to the rescue when he’s sprung.
But will he?
That is the tough question, and I bet Saldana’s smokin’-ness don’t help matters getting to an easy answer.
