Christopher Webster [Celluloid 10.08.15] France scifi action thriller adventure

A couple things of note here. Luc Besson's most ambitious project to date is official happening. The $180 million film, Valerian and the City of A Thousand Planets, recently cast Clive Owen in the lead and is based on a French comic series from writers Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières that first appeared in 1967. Owen will play a character called "Commander Arün Filitt".

The first title treatment for the film has dropped along with word that Besson and costume designer Olivier Bériot are asking for designers, artists, and creatives the world over to help dress twenty of the party guests.

The creative team wants to see your designs, which can be submitted via Talenthouse, and together with Yahoo Style’s editor in chief Joe Zee will select up to 20 winners whose costumes could be turned from a sketch into reality and featured in the final film.

Luc Besson appears in the video below to discuss the project and the contest.

Recommended Release: Fifth Element
