Luc Besson, who we can expect to hear quite a bit more of shortly with the release of District B13, has had another French film, Angel-A, picked up for domestic distribution.

Sony Pictures Classics Angel-A

According to Variety, Sony Pictures Classics has picked up North American rights to Luc Besson's Angel-A. Besson wrote, directed and produced the film.

Angel A -- which was shot in Paris last summer and bowed in France in December -- stars Jamel Debbouze as an incompetent schemer who owes a large amount of money to creditors all over Paris. His fate takes a new direction when he improbably meets the leggy Angela (Rie Rasmussen), who helps him tackle his problems. Gilbert Melki and Serge Riaboukine also star.

Though Besson has had his name stamped on multiple films since the turn of the century, Angel-A is the first he has directed since 1999's The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc.

"This is the most aesthetically pleasing film (Luc Besson) has ever made," said SPC co-head Michael Barker. "It's a very sexy fairy tale about his love of Paris and his love of romance."

"It's only taken us about 20 years to get a Luc Besson movie," Barker quipped.

Stay tuned for updates.
