DON’T CALL IT SEQUEL! But Luc Besson Wants to Return to Sci-Fi…

The Playlist asks Besson which film of his he’d like to direct a sequel to, and he says The Fifth Element… but sort-of comments, not really a sequel…

The Fifth Element. I was a little bit frustrated because I made the film right before all the new effects arrived. So when I did the film it was all blue screen, six hours, dots on the wall, takes forever to do one shot. Now, basically, you put the camera on your shoulder and then you run and then you add a couple of dinosaurs and spaceships. And I was so frustrated because it was not so easy at the time. So I always think to myself that I would avenge one day and use all the new tools to do a sci-fi film for sure….

I don’t know if it would be directly connected [to The Fifth Element] but it would be the same area and the same genre. So for me it would be connected even if the stories had nothing to do with each other.

Pirates 5? Really?

So turns out, speaking of sequels, a 5th Pirates of the Caribbean is happening. This one being titled, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Why do I mentioned it here? Well, looks like this was slated to come out next year. But recently Disney has decided to push it back to 2016. Reportedly there is no specific reason for the delay. Sounds like the Mouse is happy with how the production is going, they just want to give the picture more development time.

Which honestly is probably a smart move. With so many genre movies coming out in the next few years, and a lackluster installment that was On Stranger Tides, more time to develop the picture is probably best.

But personally, kind of done with this franchise. Kinda think you’ve done all you can with it. But we’ll see what happens.

Jurassic… World?

Well the on and off again, long-rumored follow-up to Jurassic Park 3 is confirmed, and even has a release date, June 12, 2015.

As far as story details? Pretty sure this is all rumor at this point. But sounds like it’ll be set in present day, on everyone’s favorite dino-island, Isla Nublar. Supposedly, after several attempts, Jurassic Park is up and running, and completely safe until, you know, it’s not.
