It seems like the release of Luc Besson’s follow-up to Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, the crime thriller Anna, is back on. The first trailer for the film has been requested by Lionsgate to be attached to North American screenings of Hellboy next week (via Deluxe/Technicolor) and an online release is expected in the next seven days.
This follows the French courts’ dismissal of sexual assault allegations levied against the director, which previously put the release of Besson’s latest in North America and elsewhere in doubt. With the marketing kicking off, it seems we should be getting a release date very soon.
Thriller about a mysterious Russian salesgirl who becomes an international fashion icon.
Starring Sasha Luss, Helen Mirren, Luke Evans and Cillian Murphy, the film is released later this year.
