Fifth Element Sequel?


By Robert T. Trate     September 13, 2013

Luc Besson recently sat down with Indiewire about his upcoming Family Business. Besson was asked it there is any film he would like to go back and do a sequel for. The answer was a surprise, but one we here at Mania hope there is some merit to. 




QUESTION by Indiewire: You've produced a lot of sequels to the movies you've overseen. Do you want to go back and do one for a film you've directed?


Besson’s Answer: "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.

QUESTION by Indiewire: Would it be connected directly to "The Fifth Element?"

Besson’s Answer: I don't know if it would be directly connected 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. 

Same universe, but not directly connected to the events of the Fifth Element? What do you think Maniacs? Another story by Besson, set in the time frame of the future, sounds really appealing. Sound off below!

A prequel about Zorg, Gary Oldman still plays the character but at the end of the movie gets plastic sugery to look 15 years younger...

I'll go see this movie only if there's a scene where Chris Tucker is fed feet first into a wood chipper... And no more sex scenes with Bruce Willis with girls old enough to be his daughter... or grand-daughter these days.

The effects were great in the movie. I loved the aliens, the faces were so expressive.

How about a remake of Pulp Fiction set in the FE universe? No? In any case I just can't find myself caring about this news...
