Luc Besson Planning Sci-Fi Film

fifth-element_audioAccording to Coming Soon, Luc Besson (THE FIFTH ELEMENT) plans to revisit the SF genre with a new film.  

In an interview with radio station Europe 1, he said he’s designing “creatures” for the project which he describes as  “THE FIFTH ELEMENT to the 10th power”.

He hopes to begin the shooting the film in 2012 and 2013, with a 2014 release in mind.

Certainly the semi- farcical FIFTH ELEMENT was cramed full of strange creatures and imaginative  designs, very much like a issue of Heavy Metal brought to life. Hopefully, the script for this unnamed feature will be given as much thought as its visual style.
