Scarlett Johansson is in final talks to star in Luc Besson’s latest action film, Lucy.
The Hollywood Reporter says Besson has written the script which tells the tale of a woman who is forced to become a drugs mule. The drugs go into her system and transform her into an ass-kicking machine as well as giving her the power to move things with her mind and absorb information instantaneously.
Besson has just recently finished filming the Mafia drama Malavita which starts Robert De Niro and Tommy Lee Jones.
Johansson is currently filming Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Universal is set to distribute the film which will be produced by Besson and his EuropaCorp CEL Christophe Lambert.
