Vincent Regan


Luc Besson's 3D movie Section 8 has picked up300 and Clash Of The Titans actor Vincent Regan.

In an exclusive interview with Total Film on the set of Brit thriller The Holding, Regan - who worked with Besson over a decade ago on César Award winner Joan Of Arc - revealed that he will be re-teaming with the flamboyant French director for Section 8.

The flick, which Regan describes as “Taken meets The Fifth Element in 3D”, is being written and produced by Besson, while Irish duo James Mather and Stephen St. Leger will direct.

Gifted a modest budget of just $30m, Section 8 is set on a military prison that is floating in Earth's orbit. Expect gritty drama, the rat-a-tat of gun blasts, and an abundance of explosions...

Think it's about time Besson returned to action films?
