Scarlett Johansson and Luc Besson Team-Up for Action Thriller LUCY

By AMC April 29, 2013

Scarlett Johansson made a splash and turned heads as Black Widow in Marvel's "The Avengers" and "Iron Man 2". Now the bombshell is in final talks to try her hand again at action, in a new film from director Luc Besson titled "Lucy".

The story revolves around a woman who is forced to become a drug mule, who then becomes a lethal fighting machine with powers when the drug enters her system. She then finds herself able to retain knowledge at lightning speed, she doesn't' feel any pain and she can move things with her mind.

Besson is of course great at the action thriller genre, having already helmed such classics as "The Fifth Element" and "The Professional". He has recently produced other high-voltage films such as "Taken", "Colombiana" and "Lockout".

I wasn't always the biggest fan of Johansson, other than the fact that she's absolutely stunning. But her as Black Widow definitely turned me around, as she brought a great level of skill to that role, showcasing both strength as well as vulnerability when it was needed. I look forward to seeing what Besson and Johansson can create together.
