Directors usually have to go through a long audition process to find the star of their directorial debut. Marco Perego-Saldana, however, just had to ask his other half. Zoe Saldana will star in new romantic drama Keyhole Garden.

Perego-Saldana and Rick Rapoza wrote the script, which will trace the sprawling romance of a man and woman whose love for each other struggles to overcome the divisiveness of life on America’s southern border. The film aims to be a timely exploration of the humanity of immigration and the fragility of life through three interwoven narratives: a young boy trying to save his undocumented friend from deportation; an immigration agent unknowingly dooming a former lover; and a cartel trafficker carrying out his last mission.

The cameras for this one are scheduled to start rolling in August. Saldana, on screen now in Avengers: Endgame, will be back as Neytiri in the next Avatar film, which arrives on 17 December 2021 (hopefully).
