Zoe Saldana Wants A Role In J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: EPISODE VII
Despite playing Uhura in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek series, Zoe Saldana is thrilled to see the director land the Star Wars: Episode VII directing gig and expresses her interest in reuniting with him on the highly anticipated film.
Speaking with E! Online on the Oscars red carpet, actress Zoe "Uhura" Saldana shares her thoughts on her Star Trek Into Darkness director J.J. Abrams moving on to helm Star Wars: Episode VII for Disney/LucasFilm. Like Zachary Quinto, Chris Pine, Simon Pegg and Roberto Orci, she's very happy to see Abrams make the decision, but hopes that he will return for a third Star Trek installment. "I'm totally ecstatic,. We are going to give him s--t because we don't want him to ever think about leaving just in case we go into a third installment of Star Trek." And to no surprise, Saldana expresses interest in taking on a "sexy" role in Star Wars VII. "I'm getting ready to call them, I tell you that. I want to be a sexy something, like a princess from another planet." If any, which character would you like to see her play?
Star Trek Into Darkness is set to hit theaters May 17th. Despite J.J. Abrams not committing to the release date, Star Wars: Episode VII is targeting a 2015 debut.
