At this point I think you need to take this with huge gulps of salt. If it is true, and I doubt that very much, Besson would have to be producing, not directing. He gave up directing awhile back but is still very involved as a producer.
South Korean actor Dong-Kun Jang will act in the new thriller by French director Luc Besson, the Information Times reported on Wednesday.
International stars Natalie Portman and Milla Jovovich are also expected to star in the film.
Set in present-day New York, the film will chronicle subplots triggered by serial killings.
Based on an award-winning novel by a South Korean college professor, the Korean-French film, yet to be titled, will start filming in early 2009.
How can they not even have the title of the novel? Sheesh.
