Wait, when did John Travolta do an action movie with Luc Besson in Paris? Apparently earlier this year, with a 2010 release date set for the duo’s “From Paris With Love”. The title and first poster (below) makes it sound like an action-comedy, but the plot sounds pretty serious. Weird. The film co-stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and is directed by Pierre Morel, who recently hit it big with the Luc Besson/Liam Neeson actioner “Taken”.
A low-ranking intelligence operative (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) working in the office of the U.S. Ambassador in France takes on more than he bargained for when he partners with a wisecracking, fast-shooting, high-ranking U.S. agent (John Travolta) who’s been sent to Paris to stop a terrorist attack.
Starring John Travolta, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Kasia Smutniak, Amber Rose Revah, Melissa Mars, Richard Durden, and Farid Elouardi.
