While out promoting her latest film, The Words, Zoë Saldana spoke about returning to work on Star Trek 2.
In The Words, Saldana is playing the wife of an aspiring writer who becomes famous after finding an old manuscript which he takes and uses as his own work.
Saldana was as fashionable as ever at Sundance in spite of the cold weather. “I did bring warm stuff,” she said, wearing green suede shoes with stiletto heels instead of more practical footwear, “but I also bought fashion-y stuff. Come on. You’ve got to pay the price, even if it’s too cold.”
Star Trek 2 is Saldana’s current movie project, and she spoke about her eagerness to work with those associated with the rebooted Star Trek again. “It’s wonderful because I’ve been dying to work with the cast again, to work with J.J.,” she said. “I love him so much. He’s such an amazing human being and such an amazing storyteller and a great director, so what more can I ask for? I start the year and I’m literally going back to a very familiar environment and being a part of a great story.”
