Zoe Saldana and producers Jane Startz and Aida Bernal have picked up the rights to Joy Castro's novel HELL OR HIGH WATER, Deadline reported this afternoon. At this time, Saldana and her sister Cisley's Saldana Productions are making a joint effort with Jane Startz Productions and Bernal's Spellbound Entertainment to adapt the acclaimed novel into either a TV series or a feature film.

HELL OR HIGH WATER is officially described as:

"Nola Céspedes, an ambitious young reporter at the Times-Picayune, finally catches a break: an assignment to write her first full-length feature. While investigating her story, she also becomes fixated on the search for a missing tourist in the French Quarter. As Nola’s work leads her into a violent criminal underworld, she’s forced to face disturbing truths from her own past and is confronted with the question: In the aftermath of devastation, who is responsible for rebuilding what's been broken?

Vividly rendered in razor-sharp prose, this haunting thriller is a riveting journey of trust betrayed—and the courageous struggle to rebuild. Fast-paced, atmospheric, and with a knockout twist, Hell or High Water features an unforgettable heroine as fascinating and multilayered as New Orleans itself."

Saldana is best known for her role in James Cameron's AVATAR, as well as J.J. Abrams' STAR TREK. She is set to reprise her role as 'Uhura' the next installment of the series, STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS.
