When Luc Besson is on directing duties, audiences are always intrigued to see what journey he takes them on. Whether its an action thriller like LEON, big-budget science-fiction epic THE FIFTH ELEMENT or like his latest, passion project THE LADY, Besson always fascinates.

The French filmmaker is in talks with superstar Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie to take the lead in his next project. The currently untitled film has been written by Besson and is said to be a big-budget ‘dramatic thriller that is rooted in true scientific elements’. Sounds fascinating and hopefully we will see him return to the form of his first american-set feature, LEON. Just promise us no Chris Tucker in this one please.

Craig was our great north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.
