The actress will take on the role of a school psychologist in the picture.
In I Kill Giants, based on a 2008 graphic novel by Joe Kelly, a misfit girl battles “both real and imaginary monsters in her life.”
Saldana, as Mrs. Mollé, “plays a key role by helping the protagonist face both internal and external threats, forming a bond with her in the process.”
