Besson Counting On "Section 8"

Director Luc Besson's French studio EuropaCorp is prepping the 3D sci-fi action feature "Section 8", to be co-directed by Stephen St Leger and James Mather, from a screenplay by St. Leger, Mather and Besson. Besson will produce.

St. Leger and Mather previously gained attention with their calling card short "Prey Alone".

"Section 8" is set in a prison orbiting above the earth, housing 500 of the world's most dangerous prisoners, kept in suspended animation, until they suddenly awaken.

The new film is reportedly budgeted around $30 million.

Besson wants to start late spring or early summer...
