Dane DeHaan looks ready to take control in a new photo from Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, directed by Luc Besson (Lucy), ahead of the movie’s Comic-Con panel Thursday in Hall H, from 1-2 p.m. PT.
DeHaan previously told EW, “I think Luc knew exactly what he wanted and got it. You can’t believe the stuff that he has in his head. It’s gonna be crazy. It’s gonna be epic for sure.”
The film is based off a graphic novel series called Valérian and Laureline, which was first published in 1967. Indie film favorite DeHaan (Kill your Darlings and Chronicle) plays Valerian, the time-traveling cop. Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad and Paper Towns) continues to beef up her acting résumé as Valerian’s partner and crush Laureline.
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is due out July 21, 2017. See the photo above.
