In a pre-Berlin Film Festival signing, Milla Jovovich has come on board to star in action-thriller “Hummingbird,” based on John McClain’s Black List script.

Jovovich is the third actress cast in the lead role. Zoe Saldana was cast a year ago and replaced in the fall by Olivia Munn in the role of a black-ops assassin who begins to question her skills and training when she’s placed on a questionable assignment. Jovovich will be replacing Munn. Producers said Tuesday that “Hummingbird” will be in the vein of “Lucy” and the Jason Bourne film franchise.

Production will start in the summer. China’s Fundamental Films will produce the movie alongside Broken Road Productions.

Jovovich recently wrapped production on “Hellboy” and will next be seen opposite Woody Harrelson and Tommy Lee Jones in Rob Reiner’s political drama “Shock and Awe.”
