Remember how I was just saying that Angelina Jolie might be starring in Luc Besson’s next film? Well now the project can really get rolling since Universal has picked up North American rights.
According to THR, Universal has acquired 80 percent of worldwide distribution rights to the project which is being described as a “dramatic thriller with action.” Besson is ready to produce his screenplay, now it just needs to be seen what Angie will do.
Universal is pushing the buzz for the movie claiming that this will be Besson’s return to where he really started and made a name for himself.
Universal is also currently looking at another one of Jolie’s possible projects, a biopic of Gertrude Bell that has Ridley Scott attached to direct.
