Olivia Munn replaces Zoe Saldana in action pic Hummingbird
Deadline is reporting that Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse, The Newsroom) will replace Zoe Saldana in the action pic Hummingbird. Saldana was forced to drop out due to conflicts with the currently-shooting Avatar sequels.
Munn will play a black-ops assassin forced to confront her true identity while going after her latest mark. John McClain wrote the Black List script. Swedish directing team Markus Kryler and Fredrik Akerstrom, who helmed the cinematics for Electronic Arts’ Battlefield 1 video game, will direct Munn in the picture.
Fundamental Films’ Mark Gao and Gregory Ouanhon will produce alongside Todd Garner of Broken Road Productions. Fundamental’s Gary Glushon and Jeremy Stein will executive produce.
Munn will next be seen in Shane Black’s The Predator and Simon Kinberg’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
