Zoe Saldana Out, Olivia Munn In For Action-Thriller 'Hummingbird'

Olivia Munn is about to get her own action movie and possible franchise. Deadline reports Munn will star in the action-thriller Hummingbird, replacing Zoe Saldana who dropped out due to scheduling conflicts.

The storyline is pretty basic, at least on paper, but should give Munn a chance to show what she can do with the spotlight totally on her.  She would play a black ops assassin whose latest target forces her to confront her true identity.  Marcus Kryler and Fredrik Akerström will direct from a script by John McClain.

Munn has a couple of action flicks ahead of her already. She'll reprise her role as Psylocke in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and will star in Shane Black's The Predator.
