The award-winning director unveiled this news through his official Sina Weibo account, China's number-one micro-blogging platform.

Being a former member of EXO and the former leader of its sub-group, EXO-M, Kris Wu has recently been most active in China.

The 25-year-old pop idol has starred in several hit Chinese movies including 'Mr. Six' and 'L.O.R.D.: Legend of Ravaging Dynasties'.

He has also released solo singles, like 'Bad Girl' and a remake of classic Chinese rock song 'Girl in The Flower Room'.

Previous, the director has set actor Dane DeHaan, super model Cara Delevingne, and pop diva Rihanna as the leading cast of the film.

'Valerian' is based on the iconic French graphic novel series of the same name. Having first appeared in 1967, the book has sold more than 10 million copies in 21 languages.

Setting the plot in the 28th century, the film will portray a time when humanity learns how to time-travel.

'Valerian' will start filming soon, and is planned to be released around the summer of 2017.
