Star Trek actress Zoe Saldana has joined the cast of the film adaptation of Joe Kelly and Ken Niimura's I Kill Giants, according to Deadline.
I Kill Giants tells the story of Barbara, a young girl who deals with both real and imaginary monsters. Saldana will reportedly play Mrs. Molle, a school psychologist who forms a bond with Barbara, played by newcomer Madison Wolfe.
Saldana is no stranger to comic book adaptations, having starred in Guardians of the Galaxy, The Losers, as well as three major sci-fi films with Avatar and the Star Trek franchise.
I Kill Giants is scheduled to begin filming in early 2016, with director Anders Walter working off a script by Kelly himself.
