The actress has a leading role in the action-packed film about the fight against terrorists.

It became known that the star of the films “Avatar”, “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Star Trek” Zoe Saldana is approved for the main role in the upcoming thriller Sabaya. The director of the picture will be Reed Morano, who previously worked on the television series “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Sabaya will be shot on the basis of real events – the film tells about how in 2015 the American authorities launched a special operation aimed at the elimination of one of the leaders of the Islamic State terrorist organization (banned in Russia).

Saldana will be executed by a CIA employee who makes friends with a fifteen-year-old refugee from Syria, where she was held as a sex slave. Despite the fact that the girl is illiterate, her stories allow the CIA to attack the trail of the leaders of the Islamic State. Having gone to the place where the girl was previously held captive, the participants in the special operation discover secret information that will later allow the destruction of terrorists.
