Earlier this month, we reported that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story composer Alexandre Desplat had dropped out of the film after reshoots caused him to have a scheduling conflict. Rogue One hired Michael Giacchino to replace him, and now The Hollywood Reporter says that Desplat has moved on to Luc Bessonā€™s Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planetsā€”because you can take the man out of the space movie, but you canā€™t take the space movie out of the man. Besson made the announcement himself on Instagram, explaining that Desplat had to ā€œleave the ā€˜Black Starā€™ā€ but found ā€œa new homeā€ in Valerian. (For the people out there who arenā€™t Francophiles, ā€œBlack Starā€ is how ā€œDeath Starā€ is translated in the French version of Star Wars.)


Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets stars Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne, and itā€™s based on a French comic book about space people doing stuff in space. The film will be in theaters on July 21, 2017.
