Who's that lady? It's Michelle Yeoh in the teaser for Luc Besson's The Lady

Luc Besson is constantly cranking out new movies as a writer and producer, but doesn't get behind the camera often enough. The last time he directed a biopic, we got (then-wife) Milla Jovovich as historical ass-kicker Joan of Arc in THE MESSENGER (unless ARTHUR AND THE MINIMOYS was based on a true story). In his latest THE LADY, Michelle Yeoh kicks ass... democratically.

Synopsis: THE LADY is the story of Aung San Suu Kyi, the woman who is at the core of Burma's democracy movement, and her husband, Michael Aris. Despite distance, long separations, and a dangerously hostile regime, their love endures until the very end.

The movie premieres next month at the Toronto International Film Festival. Besson is reportedly also working on his anticipated return to directing big-budget sci-fi, although the current status of that project is unknown (probably because he's occupied with the TAKEN sequel, THE TRANSPORTER cable series and a dozen other things).

Check out THE LADY teaser below or in HD at Yahoo.

Extra Tidbit: When I saw those Burmese soldiers, I half-expected their heads to start popping off courtesy of Rambo's .50 cal.

I like Luc Besson, and Michelle Yeoh is such a good physical actor and dramatic as well. If anybody is a fan of Hong Kong cinema, Michelle Yeoh has to be on your top list.

I guess this is one of those passion projects for Luc. Should be interesting.

Besson eh?

Looks like the Frenchman is stepping out of his comfort zone. I'm intrigued.
