Eric Serra is scoring the upcoming drama The Lady. The film is directed by Luc Besson who has collaborated with the composer on most of his movies (including Leon: The Professional, The Fifth Element and La femme Nikita. The French/British co-production tells the true story of political activist Aung San Suu Kyi and her husband Michael Aris. Michelle Yeoh stars in the title role as Suu Kyi, the reluctant politician who spent almost 15 years under house arrest in Burma until last November. The film focuses on the heartrending choice she had to make about whether to return to England and nurse her husband, played by David Thewlis, who was dying of cancer or to carry on fighting for democracy in Burma. Besson is producing alongside Andy Harries (The Queen) and Virginie Silla (From Paris with Love). The Lady is set to premiere at this year’s Toronto Film Festival in September. No word yet on a domestic release date for the film.
