Luc Besson, the French director behind classics
, is being tipped for a new romantic drama.
The top secret project would be Besson’s first time directing a live action English-speaking film in over a decade, the last being his Joan Of Arc opus starring Milla Jovovich.
Writer David Marconi of
Die Hard 4
and upcoming horror
has reportedly written a love story script that Besson will direct.
Though the Gallic director has helmed this year’s comic adap
The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec
as well as 2005’s
Arthur And The Invisibles
, Besson has steered clear of helming live English speaking flicks since 1999.
Instead, he has preferred to produce, helping to get funds for the likes of
The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada
series and, uh,
His return to British (well, American) shores is being treated with the utmost secrecy, with the title and synopsis of Marconi’s script unknown at present. Still, whispers suggest that shooting could begin as early as September. We hope there are guns. And Jean Reno.
Think it’s about time? What do you fancy Besson helming?
