Director, writer, and producer Luc Besson has always been prolific in the film industry. Yet, he rarely helms the director seat. It’s recently been reported that Besson is working on a sci-fi film which is being compared to his movie The Fifth Element. He is, of course, set to direct.

“With the advent of digital technology, it is amazing what you can do. The technique has caught the imagination. One can imagine anything, there will always technicians to follow you in your delusion.”

-Luc Besson

Pre-production begins in 2011 and production supposedly in 2012 and 2013. It’s planned to be a sci-fi epic.

Who isn’t excited for it? I’m a huge fan of The Fifth Element. Luc Besson back to directing a sci-fi film has massive potential. I’m very stoked for it. Now to learn patience.
