Zoe Saldana is all over the place right now. She is in the film Death at a Funeral that opened last weekend, in The Losers, opening next Friday and Avatar is released on DVD & Blu-ray this week, plus a bunch of magazine covers. Not surprisingly her schedule is starting to fill up, and in a new interview she outlined what is next, including an update on the Star Trek sequel schedule.
Zoe’s busy schedule with 2 more films then Trek and Avatar sequels
In recent interviews a number of Star Trek actors have made guesses as to when the Star Trek sequel will begin shooting. Now it appears they will be getting a more definitive answer soon. In an interview promoting The Losers, Zoe spoke to the Philippine Daily Inquirer about her plans, including Star Trek. Here is an excerpt:
Of the “great projects” that she has been developing, Zoe is especially excited about “a film with Joel Schumacher—he’s on my bucket list” and “a small New York romantic movie that’s very personal, my way of going back to my roots and little stories that mean so much.”
Zoe is hoping to make these films before she does “Star Trek 2.” “Within a month, we’ll have specific filming dates for ‘Star Trek 2,’ ” she revealed. “So we have to do whatever we have to do before the Enterprise comes calling.”
So it looks like Paramount is getting ready to set up their Star Trek sequel schedule. The film is due to be released June 29, 2012.

As for her next trip the Pandora, Saldana sees the Avatar sequel as more long term, and she also feels that she is going to need extra time to prepare to go blue again. Here is an excerpt from a report (via ReelLoop) from The Losers press conference:
[Jim Cameron] already knows how I like to approach it,” says Saldana. “I need at least 6 to 7 months of training and stuff to get into Neytiri again and whatever’s going to happen is going to happen.
Zoe will next be seen in The Losers, opening Friday April 23rd. Here is a new commercial, featuring lots of Zoe.
And you can also bring Zoe home this week in Avatar, which comes out on Thursday April 22nd on DVD and Blu-ray.
