It’s quite rare to be able to hear about the choices of VFX studios well in advance of the film’s release, but that is apparently the case with Luc Besson’s cult comic book adaptionValerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. They have now signed on Weta Digital, Industrial Light & Magic and Rodeo FX for the visual effects. Sophie Leclerc, who previously worked with Besson on the film Lucy, is set to work as visual effects producer, while Scott Stokdyk is the overall VFX supervisor.
“The strength of the comicbooks is they were way ahead of their time,” says Besson-Silla, who is producing the film. “Mezieres and Christin had a futuristic vision and allowed so many things to happen in the story. Some of them are completely crazy, very modern.”
