Leeloo, The Fifth Element and Eric Serra’s misteriously grandiose composition: What a composer!


The Fifth Element, A film by Luc Besson, base on a story by Luc Besson

Cast

Fitz Hall (Footballer of Queen’s Park Rangers FC) appears at the beginning of the film as a twelve-year old boy.

Production

Pistol used by Bruce Willis as Maj. Korben Dallas (Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame, Seattle)

As the film went into development in the early 1990s, Besson went on to create Léon, starring Jean Reno, while comic book artist Jean-Claude Mézières, who had been hired as a conceptual designer for The Fifth Element, returned to illustrating The Circles of Power, the fifteenth volume in the Valérian and Laureline series. This particular volume featured a character named S’Traks who drives a flying taxicab through the congested air traffic of the vast metropolis on the planet Rubanis. Besson read the book and was inspired to change the character of Dallas to a taxicab driver who flies through a futuristic New York City. Zorg owns the taxi company that employs and subsequently fires Dallas as part of a one-million person layoff designed to slow economic growth at the request of the government.
