Universal takes on Angelina Jolie/Luc Besson’s dramatic thriller

Movie News

A couple of days ago, we reported that director Luc Besson wanted Angelina Jolie for a new dramatic thriller he’s working on. The Besson film would be Jolie’s next film on-screen, and it would come before she teams with director Ridley Scott on a historical epic about Gertrude Bell that “The Constant Gardener” writer Jeffrey Caine is currently rewriting.

Deadline is now reporting that Universal Pictures has acquired 80% of distribution rights — including in the U.S. — to the large-scale dramatic thriller that Luc Besson will direct, produce and wrote the script for, with Angelina Jolie in the starring role.

Although no details have been released too much, the film is described as a closer cousin to Besson’s earlier efforts like “The Professional”, “La Femme Nikita” and “The Fifth Element”.

Filming is scheduled to begin sometime in April in Paris with EuroCorp being the production company backing the film.

Jolie’s directorial film “In the Land of Blood and Honey” will have a limited release in U.S theaters starting December 23.
