Luc Besson is putting together a new science fiction film, and judging by the trailer it is going to be kick ass. Considering what he did with The Fifth Element, Transporter, and Leon, The Professional I am expecting something special. The plot is reminiscent of Escape From New York, in that a convicted (but not actually guilty) prisoner is offered his freedom if he can go to a completely lawless area and rescue a politically valuable hostage. This time around the crime he was accused of was espionage, the hostage is the president’s daughter, and the lawless place is a prison taken over by criminals so dangerous that they put it in orbit so they couldn’t escape. And doesn’t Guy Pearce look all Pliskin-like in the questioning scene? And look who’s asking the questions… this should be out in 2012, I am looking forward to it.
