Relativity Media struck a co-production and co-financing deal with Luc Besson's ("The Lady," "Taken," "Transporter") EuropaCorp on his two upcoming action flicks, "Three Days to Kill" and "Malavita" with Robert De Niro.

Besson adapted the "Malavita" script from Tonino Benacquista's book "Badfellas." The studio describes the film as a "darkly comedic auctioneer" about a notorious mafia family who gets relocated to Normandy, France under the witness protection program. Filming begins in Paris this July, with additional shooting slated for Normandy and New York.

Relativity describes "Three Days to Kill" as "a tense, gripping action tale with a sense of humor." Besson and Adi Hasak ("From Paris With Love") wrote the script, which centers on Secret Service Agent Ethan Runner as he discovers he's dying, decides to retire and reconnect with his estranged family, only to be interrupted with another mission and an experimental drug that could save his life.
