Variety reports that EuropaCorp is in pre-production on its next big English-language project, the 3D sci-fi action film Section 8.

Ireland's Stephen St. Leger and James Mather are attached to direct from a screenplay by St. Leger, Mather and EuropaCorp owner Luc Besson, who will also produce.

Section 8 takes place in a prison orbiting 50 miles above the earth. The prison houses 500 of the world's most dangerous prisoners, who are kept asleep by sophisticated techniques until they suddenly awaken.

The film, which starts shooting late spring/early summer, is budgeted at more than $30 million.

EuropaCorp is also focusing on Brick Mansion, the U.S. English-language remake of Pierre Morel's action-thriller District 13.
