What is it, Famous Directors Hawking New Scripts To Studios Week in Hollywood? Oh, right: that’s every week. Still, Luc Besson is joining M Night Shyamalan on the pimp trail, offering his new, untitled love story script around the various companies.
According to the Heat Vision blog, Besson’s latest, which he co-wrote with Live Free Or Die Hard’s David Marconi, is being kept under wraps until someone actually buys it, beyond the fact that it has a serious romance angle.
Besson’s largely been found making family fare these days, with the likes of the Arthur ‘toons and his latest directorial job, an adaptation of The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec. He’s also continued producing action films like From Paris With Love and the District 13 series.
And though the unknown romantic pic is the only one that boasts him as a director, he is still setting up Colombiana (with Zoe Saldana lined up to star) and space drama The Lock Out.
The plan is to start shooting the new movie (which would be his first English-language film in a decade) this September in London, with casting starting right now.
