Luc Besson is known for his ability to craft a strong female lead. Besson's filmography is a lineage of powerful on-screen women: Whether it be in 'Nikita,' 'The Professional,' 'The Fifth Element,' or, now, with Zoe Saldana playing an assassin in this weekend's new release (that Besson wrote and produced), 'Colombiana.' For this discussion, Besson took a look back at the women in his cinematic life (as you can see in the gallery below), explaining what makes each one unique. We also looked ahead to Besson's next project, 'The Lady' – about the real life story of oppressed Burmese politician Aung San Suu Kyi -- and he tells us why there will never, ever be a sequel to 'The Fifth Element.'
