Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne have signed on for the lead roles in Luc Besson’s sci-fi adventure film VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS. Based on the 1967 comic book series written by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mezieres, the story follows the adventures of a space-and-time-traveling agent and his sidekick. Besson, who will also script the project, recently helmed the Scarlett Johansson starrer Lucy and is perhaps best known for directing the cult hit The Fifth Element starring Bruce Willis.
DeHaan is known for his roles in Chronicle and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. He will be seen in the upcoming political biopic Young Americans with Daniel Radcliffe.
Known for her role in Anna Karenina, Delevingne will be seen in the indie-film Paper Towns and Warner Bros. Suicide Squad.
