    Unhappy Nooooooo!! Luc Besson is calling it quits !!

    PARIS -
    Luc Besson, director of the "The Professional" and "The Fifth Element," says his latest movie will be his last. The French filmmaker said Monday that he intended to devote himself instead to civic projects, including starting a foundation to help youths in France's depressed inner cities.

    Besson's 10th and last movie, "Arthur et les Minimoys," opens in France on Dec. 13.

    "They are my 10 little babies," he told RTL radio. "I love them all. I am pleased to have completed this cycle. That is finished."

    Besson, 47, said he was keen to try his hand at a whole array of new projects.

    "I want to take a little care of my fellow citizens. I want to take a little care of my planet. I want to act in favor of the inner cities, in favor of the environment. I want to do lots of things," he said.

    "I am trying to start a foundation. I want to help youths in the inner cities. I am very sensitive about all these youths. I find that they have incredible energy."

    The director's other films include "The Big Blue," "Angel-A" and "The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc."

    She's just too pretty for Hollywood. I don't know, put her in a glass box and display her at the Metropolitan Museum of Art or something. - Jake on the topic of Scarlett Johansson.

    Man, and I was really hoping someday he would make a Leon: the Professional sequel. Dang, hate to see him leave.

    Very good director. As producer hes choosen some really badmovies, but as director hes excellent.

    Cant say im sorry though. Not when hes going off to do "better" things.

    How can you confuse Jean Reno with anyone?

    He is in every movie that requires a French actor to play a French Character;

    is he the only French actor working in Hollywood?

    Luc Besson has decided, that if his newest movie, animated "Arthur and the Minimoys" will appeal spectators, he will work in june of next year on its sequel.

    So... go to the cinema!

    Except for Leon and The Fifth Element I can't remember anything special from Luc Besson as a director. And those movies are over 10 years old.

    I always thought that The Big Blue and The Messenger were good. Out of all his movies, my favorite would be The Fifth Element.
    You're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you, but you can't be sure. But it doesn't matter - because we'll be together.

    Don't forget about Nikita. I still think of this movie as the best Besson ever. oh! And there's also Atlantis. But this is only for big fans.
