Get out your Multipass! Luc Besson wants to make a sequel to The Fifth Element

Article cover image

The Fifth Element is one of those movies that I have really strong feelings about. Like, if you don't like the movie, chances are I'll probably have a hard time trusting you as a person. Everything about it still holds up as being a sci-fi masterpiece: The casting, the special effects, Jean Paul Gaultier's costumes, and everything else. It's just that fantastic.

So, imagine what my nerd-o-meter did when director told The Playlist this when asked what movie he'd like to make a sequel to:

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.

This is my reaction:

This needs to happen, right?! Let me know what you think on Twitter
