Scarlett Johansson may be busy filming Captain America: The Winter Soldier in Cleveland right now, but the actress has some time to fill afterwards before heading into The Avengers sequel. Word has it that Black Widow is going to star in Luc Besson’s next action movie entitled Lucy, this from THR. They go on to say that the film is being written and directed by the man behind Fifth Element which is undoubtedly going to bring out a lot of love from his cult fanbase beyond that for Transporter and Taken (franchises Besson merely produces.)
The plot of the film has Scar Jo playing a woman forced to become a drug mule. After a drug goes into her system my mistake, she is transformed into an ass-kicking machine who can absorb knowledge instantly and move objects with her mind. This sounds really high octane and many will undoubtedly make comparisons to Europa’s Colombiana with Zoe Saldana; however, I might stress that Besson merely produced the effort.
