Luc Besson doesn’t own the rights to Leon (aka The Professional), so he can’t produce a sequel. But he kind of bypass the issue, by developing Colombiana, an action movie at the crossroads of Leon and Nikita. Enjoy below the first official movie trailer of Colombiana, it’s action-packed:
“A young woman, after witnessing her parents’ murder as a child in Bogota, grows up to be a stone-cold assassin.”
The film is starring the gorgeous Zoe Saldana in the lead role. It’s directed by Olivier Megaton based on a script by Luc Besson. The release date of Colombiana is set for September 2, 2011.
