ZOE SALDANA TO BATTLE 19TH CENTURY PIRATES IN THE BLUFF HISTORICAL ADVENTURE AT NETFLIX! TAYLOR KITSCH JOINS CHRIS PRATT IN AMAZON'S TERMINAL LIST MOVIE

  ZOE SALDANA TO BATTLE 
PIRATES IN THE BLUFF FILM
Zoe Saldana will lead The Bluff adventure
Netflix and director Frank E. Flowers are preparing a new historical adventure movie THE BLUFF and they have set Zoe Saldana as the lead. Apparently, several streaming services battled for the project set in the Cayman Islands in the 1800s in which Saldana plays Ercell, a Caribbean woman whose secret past is revealed when her island is invaded by vicious buccaneers. As Deadline writes, the intention is to blend visceral action and historical fiction to create a real action vehicle as the heroine fights against the atrocities committed by the pirates.  The movie will also have another strong female who is part of the vigilante campaign, and also the nasty lead pirate so stayed tuned for the casting updates for other of the leading roles.

 THE TERMINAL LIST SERIES 
TAYLOR KITSCH JOINS CHRIS PRATT IN AMAZON TV SHOW
Over at rival Amazon, the small screen adaptation of Jack Carr's best selling novel THE TERMINAL LIST has just added Taylor Kitsch next to Chris Pratt who plays James Reece, just after his entire platoon of Navy SEALs is ambushed during a high-stakes covert mission. Reece returns home to his family with conflicting memories of the event and questions about his

culpability. However, as new evidence comes to light, Reece discovers dark forces working against him, endangering not only his life but the lives of those he loves. Kitsch will play Ben Edwards, a former SEAL and Reece’s best friend. Now a member of CIA Ground Branch, Edwards uses his intelligence access and operator skill set to help Reece seek his vengeance.
