Idris Elba, Zoe Saldana join Jeffrey Dean Morgan in “The Losers”

Idris Elba (The Wire) and Zoe Saldana (Star Trek) are talks to join “The Losers,” Sylvain White ‘s adaptation of the Vertigo/DC Comics book.


The pair will join Watchmen’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan for the action film, which follows a Special Forces team betrayed by its handler and left for dead. The “losers” regroup in the interest of revenge, the opportunity to remove their names from a secret CIA death list and to conduct covert operations against the CIA and its interests.


Elba will play a character named Roque, the group’s scarred second-in-command who is motivated by money. Saldana will be Aisha, a cold-blooded loose cannon.
