Fisrtshowing was not sure if this was the untitled Besson/Jolie thriller but the above link says it is. Firstshowing goes on to say it is an untitled big scale movie written and directed by Luc Besson, sounds very similar to Valerian. Another similarity is both have Jolie and that film is for 2013 as is this one.

Shouldn't this be in the On The Lot section?


Anyway here are the tweets:

“Valerian and Laureline are exploring Syrte, capital planet of a system of 1,000 worlds. Their mission is to discover whether the Syrtians could present a danger to Earth. What they find is a decaying empire led by decadent aristocrats, a population ripe for revolution, and a mysterious caste of masked wise men who discreetly pull the strings from hidden fortresses. Swept up by the winds of history, the agents of Earth will have to choose a side.”

I don't think Jolie was ever attached to "Valerian".It looks like somebody reporting about different Besson movies got mixed up.At the time Jolie was attached to a Besson action thriller that wasn't named (though it seems to have been "Lucy") and he was also attached to do "Valerian".It looks like somebody reporting on the projects got their wires crossed and then assumed the Jolie/Besson project was "Valerian" but I am pretty sure it wasn't.
