Originally created by writer Pierre Christian and artist Jean-Claude Mezieres in 1967, the series of graphic novels charts the adventures of the titular time-travelling agent (DeHaan) and his female sidekick, Laureline (Delevingne). As for how Filitt fits into the story? That’s left for us to guess at the moment.
According to Deadline, which got a gander at storyboards for the film last month, this promises to be the biggest project Besson has tackled since The Fifth Element, with visions of a futuristic world that blends that film with Star Wars and Blade Runner, populated with all manner of weird creatures and just five human characters. He’s spending $180 million to bring it to life and has been clearing space at his studio in Paris because he needs all available soundstages. Oh, and he’s retaining one of the comic book titles, with the film currently called Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets.
