Besson’s new project is the first film to be produced under EuropaCorp’s new mandate post “Valerian.” During last month’s shareholders meeting, EuropaCorp’s CEO Marc Shmuger outlined the outfit’s aim to focus on making action thrillers and science-fiction films, in line with the company’s DNA, along the lines of “Taken,” “Lucy,” “The Professional” and “The Fifth Element.”

Mirren recently starred in “Collateral Beauty,” and can be seen next in Disney’s “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.”

On top of shrinking its slate to two to three English-language films a year, a source close to the company told Variety that EuropaCorp will now work with more modest budgets ranging from $25 million to $35 million.

“We are delighted to be reunited with Luc and his EuropaCorp team on another exciting, action-packed film featuring an A-list cast,” said Lionsgate MPG chairman Patrick Wachsberger and president of acquisitions and co-productions Jason Constantine. “Luc is a visionary filmmaker with whom we are proud to extend our longstanding relationship.”
