Luc Besson shopping around a love story, no word on explosion count yet

I’d like to think it’ll have at least one.

According to an exclusive at THR’s Heat Vision Blog, Luc Besson, well known for his explosive films such as The Fifth Element and Leon, is shopping a love story around to various studios. Nothing is known about the script, which was written with David Marconi (Live Free or Die Hard), but Besson is attached to direct.

Besson has several different films in development, including a return to space with prison film The Lock Out and Zoe Saldana-attached revenge film Colombiana. However, the love story is the only one he’s thus far listed to direct.

Besson hasn’t made a film in English since 1999’s Joan of Arc, but has been working steadily. Check out the trailer for his most recent film, comic book adaptation The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec, which opened earlier this year.
