Scarlett Johansson to star in Luc Besson’s newest action movie

April 26th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr 1 Comment

Scarlett Johansson is going to kick ass Black Widow style in Luc Besson‘s latest action film called Lucy.

Besson, who’s made movies such as The Professional, Taken, The Fifth Element, The Transporter, Le Femme Nikita, and Joan of Arc, is no stranger to having strong heroines.

Besson wrote the script which “centers on a woman forced to become a drug mule. But the drug instead goes into her system, transforming her into an ass-kicking machine. She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can’t feel pain and other discomforts”.

Yeah that sounds like a Luc Besson movie! Black Widow on steroids!!!
