Luc Besson is reconsidering returning behind the camera despite a recent interview announcing his retirement from directing, according to Production Weekly.

If the adaptation of his novel "Arthur and the Minimoys" finds an audience he will begin work on adapting the second book, "Arthur And The Forbidden City," for the big screen with a shooting start date as early as June.

The film will be released on December 13 in France and stars the voices of Madonna, Snoop Dogg and David Bowie for the English version and Mylene Farmer, Alain Bashung and Marc Lavoine in the French version.

The sequel continues the story of Arthur who's backyard looked like an ordinary garden -- until he discovered the Minimoys and their vast world where fierce battles are fought, ferocious monsters are faced, and one evil wizard, Maltazard the Cursed, rules from his terrifying stronghold: Necropolis, the forbidden city. Now ten-year-old Arthur -- magically transformed into a Minimoy -- must help them find a way into this forbidden city in order to rescue Arthur's grandfather, recover a stolen treasure, and save the land of the Minimoys before it's too late.
