French Film Director Luc Besson is releasing his latest movie, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, in 2017 and it has now been confirmed via Twitter that NECA are picking up the licence for this movie and making action figures.
Anyone who has seen a Besson film knows the visual style is very individual, none more so than one of his most iconic films The Fifth Element. Besson's other movie's include The Transporter series and District 13.
Take a look at the trailer for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets below as well as the blurb for the movie.
At this stage the key question will be if NECA will do traditional 7" figures, or like Intersteller go down the 8" retro look for the movie.
In the 28th century, special operatives Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) maintain order throughout the universe for the government of the human territories. Under orders from their commander (Clive Owen), the duo embark on a mission to Alpha, an intergalactic city where diverse species share their technology and resources for the betterment of all. The ever-expanding metropolis is also home to sinister forces that jeopardize the future of mankind.
