The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ Luc Besson to Time Travel with 'Valerian!'

Honey Buzz ~ Luc Besson to Time Travel with 'Valerian!'

Luc Besson, the brilliant mind behind beloved films such as The Fifth Element, Lucy, and The Professional, has remained fairly mum since Lucy regarding his next directorial project. But leave it to Besson to join Twitter and drop a bombshell regarding his next project:


Valerian will be based on a classic graphic novel series from Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mezieres, which focuses on a 28th Century future in which humans have discovered time travel. Valerian and his partner Laureline work for the Spatio-Temporal Service and protect the citizens of the Terran Empire. Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Cara Delevinge (a model soon appearing in her film debut Paper Towns) have already been cast as Valerian and Laureline.

While production is set to begin in December from a script Besson is writing himself, the movie isn't set for release until 2017, since it's like to fall into "sci-fi spectacle" territory. 

UPDATE: Valerian has been given a release date 
of July 21st, 2017.
