CALIFORNIA: Zoe Saldana has expressed a desire to direct a movie. The actress said that she took a role in the new thriller Blood Ties in order to work with director Guillaume Canet, who is also a César-nominated actor.”I was never the man with the plan until recently, maybe two years ago. It is only because of my desire to make that transition and become a director and that is one of the reasons why I wanted to work with Guillaume because he is an actor and now he has been making a very graceful and solid transition into directing.”–DS
