Megan Fox and Zoe Saldana are pairing up for an action-heist movie called Swindle. The plot is being kept secret, but this report claims the project came out of a desire by Meg and Zoe to do a movie together, which is pretty cool. The dudes in Hollywood team up all the time; the chicks, not as much. I'm picturing gorgeous, ruthless scammers, grifters outwitting folks of money and property and getting away with it. Dirty Rotten Sexpots. [Deadline]

I am still totally and completely mystified by the popularity of Zoe Saldana. It's almost like there's a committee somewhere that gets together and decrees arbitrarily who is going to be the flavor of the month when it comes to certain token representatives, and there isn't room for anyone else. Can you imagine how many other talented actresses of color there are out there just sitting on their asses dying for these parts? (Especially Uhura in Trek, geez.) Yet Salanda is apparently the only black actress Hollywood is aware of for 2 or 3 years running now. Why? Certainly not based on talent. It's a mystery.
