Few details are currently know, other than the fact Besson will write and direct what is being described as an action epic “rooted in true scientific elements”.

Several studios are already interested in acquiring the rights so, if all goes to plan, expect to see this one entering production early next year.

Jolie is about to start promotional duties for In the Land of Blood and Honey, which marks her debut as director, while Lockout, which Besson wrote and produced, will be released in April, 2012.
