EuropaCorp, Fundemental Team Up For Besson's Next, WARRIOR'S GATE
Things seem to be cooking for a while now for Luc Besson and his production company Europacorp going into 2014 with a few films releasing this year, including Brick Mansions and the August release of Besson's newly completed sci-fi action thriller, Lucy, featuring Scarlett Johansson. The company has also been busy formulating its partnership with Mark Gao Jingdong over at Shanghai-based film production and sales company Fundemental Films, with plans to produce and release a batch of new films, notably including the new Transporter trilogy with actor Ed Skrein that was announced in the summer of last year.
On the film front, the same THR report also officially confirmed another film on the way to be co-produced by both parties in the form of a new action adventure film titled Warrior's Gate. At the time, the story details were still unknown, but a follow-up report now concludes the plot to center on a young gamer who comes across an antique box that throws him back in time to ancient China where he eventually learns martial arts.
