The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Be afraid. It has been sug­gested that Luc Bes­son is to di­rect a biopic of Aung San Suu Kyi, the coura­geous Burmese democ­racy cam­paigner, star­ring Michele Yeoh.

There’s noth­ing wrong with Yeoh, who, though based in Hong Kong, is of Malaysian stock. And that’s close enough for the movies. But Luc Bes­son? He’s Luc Bes­son, for Pete’s sake.
