Zoe Saldana will produce a feature documentary titled Gone Missing. This film is currently in production and will explore the epidemic of missing and murdered indigenous women and girls of Canada.
Saldana will produce through Cinestar Pictures, a production company that she runs with her sisters Cisely and Mariel, alongside producer/director Leslie Owens who will produce through her production company, Owen Media Group.
According to Owens, there are over 4,000 documented cases of women and girls who have disappeared or have been murdered across Canada during the past three decades.
