Luc Besson working on new sci-fi film, to be THE FIFTH ELEMENT “to the power 10″

It’s about damn time.

According to Fantasy.Fr (via Coming Soon), the beloved director of such films as THE PROFESSIONAL, and THE FIFTH ELEMENT, Luc Besson, may finally have found his next project. The director told the outlet that he’s working on a brand new sci-fi epic that is “THE FIFTH ELEMENT to the power 10.”

Count me in.

The director has made only four films since 1999, and while he’s been producing his little ass off, I can’t help but think that it’s about time that he got off his producer’s throne and got back into the world of true filmmaking. He’s a very gifted filmmaker, and while we don’t know about the plot truly, what we do know is quite interesting.

Apparently the film has been inspired by AVATAR and the film will start production in 2012 or 2013, as the film “will be very, very big.” Now, the film may be a bit off, but we do get Besson’s next film, THE EXTRAORDINARY ADVENTURES OF ADELE BLANC-SEC sometime relatively soon. Although without a current U.S. release date set, who the hell knows when we’ll lay eyes on that film.
